Description

The Freelance Fashion Designer’s Handbook is your essential guide on how to go it alone, covering what to expect, making sure you get paid, planning your time, keeping up with your accounts, compiling technical packages for garments.  It is your portable mentor, equipping you to work independently. Part 1 covers all the information to becoming a freelance designer such as creating a basic freelance contract, invoicing, how to find work , tax returns and much more.  All supported with case studies. Part 2 contains the technical aspects of being a designer – including how to compile full technical packages for garments to be manufactured abroad.   This fifth edition continues to offer an introduction to the principles of pattern cutting, with a range of good basic blocks and examples of their application to garments. New for this edition is the inclusion of colour to help students recognize the different sections of the book and to enhance the garment illustrations. Colour illustrations also offer a new dimension to the updated material on computer-aided design and the CAD chapter now provides students with a clear guide to the technology. The size charts have been revised to reflect the changes in body sizing, the co-ordination with European size charts and to the way that clothes are now marketed to different sectors. The great expansion of casual wear has led to the growth of ‘flat cutting’ with no darting, and the section devoted to this type of cutting has been further expanded. This best-selling textbook with its tried-and-tested presentation of authoritative text and clear diagrams remains the essential purchase for students of fashion and design.
