Instructor’s Guide

Creativity in Fashion Design: An Inspiration

TRACY JENNINGS —Dominican University
Creativity is thought to be a central component of design, but what is it, exactly, and what
role does it play in fashion design? Oftentimes, creativity is misunderstood as an exception-
al phenomenon or a gift that some people have and some people don’t. Creativity in Fashion
Design will teach students that creativity is a tool available to anyone who understands
its components. Students are introduced to the foundations of creativity with particular
emphasis on exploring and developing one’s individual and collaborative creativity relative
to fashion design. Through a series of practical workbook exercises, students will learn
how to actively seek the characteristics and environments that foster creativity and avoid
the factors that inhibit it. They will build an inspiration journal that will show them how
creativity functions within their own design processes. As a result, students will build a
portfolio of ideas and inspirations and discover that true creativity must also achieve some
end, whether it’s artistic, aesthetic, or a response to market needs.

• Creativity and Fashion Design • Creativity and Motivation

• Workbook format balances creativity theory with immediate application
• Inspiration journal templates show students how to sort and combine their
ideas creatively
• Inspirational quotes from the fashion industry and beyond break up the theoretical
portions of the text
• Chapter-opening vignettes place the concept of each chapter in a fashion
industry context
• Boldly-illustrated activities are truly interactive—by the end of the book it will have
become the student’s own creation

• I nstructor’s Guide provides suggestions for planning the course and using the text in
the classroom

Who’s Who in Fashion

5th Edition
HOLLY PRICE ALFORD —Virginia Commonwealth University
ANNE STEGEMEYER —Fashion Specialist
Students of fashion design are eager to explore the history of their chosen field as well as
keep up with new and emerging designers. Who’s Who in Fashion captures the energy, dra-
ma, and excitement of the luminaries who make up the world of fashion. Profiles include
useful design philosophies, as well as mentors and sources of inspiration. The biographies
trace the careers of many of the men and women who’ve contributed to fashion. Besides
today’s major figures and legendary designers of the past, there are lesser known people
and newcomers worth watching as well as a sampling of interesting nonconformists—free
spirits who prefer to work off the main fashion paths. The picture would not be complete
without the style makers, those with an eye and an instinct for fashion and who interpret
it for the public; the editors, photographers, artists— those who sketch and photograph,
write about fashion, and promote it.


• Highlights of the most successful names in the fashion industry including designers
of apparel and accessories for men, women, and children
• Features photographers, editors, and celebrities who’ve contributed to the industry
• Full-color photographs throughout of designers and their most influential designs
• Running timeline throughout book that highlights key events and fashion move-
ments through history

Fashion Executives, and Attorneys
Edited by GUILLERMO C. JIMENEZ —Fashion Institute of Technology
BARBARA KOLSUN —General Counsel, Stuart Weitzman, LLC
For a full list of contributors, please visit our website at www.fairchildbooks.com
In a highly competitive global market, fashion designers and executives need state, fed-
eral, and international laws to protect their intellectual property—their brands and the
products by which their customers recognize them. And because the design and marketing
of fashion goods requires the collaboration of many professionals with different areas of
expertise, written agreements are essential for the successful management of any fashion
business. Fashion Law provides a guide to such vital issues as the application of copyright,
patent, trademark, and trade dress protection; agreements for licensing, selling, and mar-
keting fashion goods, domestically and abroad; and laws affecting treatment of employees,
leasing of retail property, and international trade. Fashion law is an emerging legal spe-
cialty, and this text provides a foundation for fashion professionals and their legal advisors
to work together effectively.

Uncovering Fashion:
Fashion Communications Across the Media
Foreword by Connie Heller-Horacek —Albright College
Fashion depends on visuals: when we see something we like, we are responding to its
color, line, form, and eye-appeal. But communicating about fashion demands much more
than the mere presence of garments, accessories, and footwear. It involves a wide range of
media including words—printed, spoken, and electronically transmitted. Those words may
stand alone, or they may be paired with images and designs to enhance and illustrate their
meaning. Uncovering Fashion uses a systematic approach to reveal the fashion industry’s
underlying network of communications. The term “fashion communications” refers not
only to monthly fashion magazines, but also to every facet of information relating to
fashion—from names of colors at the dye factory to the latest runway reviews on fashion
websites. Focusing on the key areas of manufacturing, business, sales, advertising, and
representation in the media, Wolbers uses a who-what-where-why-and-how approach to
engage critical thinking, inspire creativity, and explore all the media that serve fashion.

Illustrating Fashion: Concept to Creation

3rd Edition
STEVEN STIPELMAN —Fashion Institute of Technology
This beautifully illustrated text provides a step-by-step approach to drawing the basic
fashion figure, identifying the elements of a garment, and discussing the various tech-
niques used to render fashion illustration. The book also benefits the advanced user by its
exploration of concepts such as manipulating the figure, drawing draped garments, and
creating flats. Using designer garments, Stipelman helps the student understand a specific
concept, the designer and the garments place in the history of fashion. It is the author’s
belief that without knowledge of the past, it is impossible to design for the future. By the
end of the book students will have an understanding of the concepts of fashion drawing,
both basic and advanced techniques, of their own talents and goals, and a glimmer of their
own personal style.

Tailored Fashion Design

PAMELA POWELL —College of DuPage Community College and
Columbia College Chicago
Tailoring books typically focus on the construction of tailored garments, beginning with
the selection of ready-made patterns and concluding with the assembly of the various
pieces. Tailored Fashion Design will begin a few steps ahead in the design process—provid-
ing students with inspiration and guidance to make their own patterns for tailored jackets,
which they will then execute using contemporary tailoring techniques that the book
will also outline. Fashion illustrations will show students the many silhouettes that the
tailored jacket can take—from formal and elegant to causal and sporty—for both men and
women. Basic jacket blocks will be included with instructions on how to manipulate details
within the patterns to achieve a whole new look. Profiles of professional designers who
incorporate tailoring into their collections will further highlight the important place that
the technique of tailoring continues to hold in today’s fashion industry. Students will learn
to consider tailoring as a design element, rather than just a method of garment assembly.
As a result, they’ll begin to appreciate tailoring as a viable skill that not only displays their
ability to put garments together, but also showcases their creativity as designers.

Designer’s Guide to Girls’ and

Junior Apparel
RANDI BEER —Woodbury University
Designer’s Guide to Girls’ and Junior Apparel explains the process that a fashion designer
goes through to put a line together specifically for the girls’ and junior markets. It starts
with the inspiration phase, and moves to research and sketching. Chapters teach students
how the designer works with patternmakers to see the garment fabricated and sewn, and
then follows the garment as it is costed, merchandised, and prepared to be sold. Students
will be exposed to the many layers of specifications, production patterns, and testing, and
finally producing and shipping the garments. This book also shows that designing apparel
is a process that requires careful consideration of what styles sold last season, how current
events influence the popularity of designs, and other factors that affect profits in the ap-
parel industry.

Fashion Marketing: Theory, Principles &

MARIANNE C. BICKLE —University of South Carolina
Prior to the 1970s–1980s, fashion marketing focused heavily (and perhaps solely) on
women’s fashions. Today, fashion marketing influences all products and the manner of
style consumers use products. How products are marketed, when products are marketed,
the evolution of products into different sizes, shapes, colors, and uses are all influenced by
fashion marketers. Fashion marketing is taken to different levels from branding a person
(e.g., Ralph Lauren, the person), line of products (e.g., Lexus luxury cars), or a single prod-
uct (e.g., Coach handbag). This much needed text introduces new methods and technolo-
gies to apply today’s principles into future practices of fashion marketing.

• The Impact of Fashion
• Branding and Image
• Fashion Marketing
• The Buying Season: Marketing Fashions to Retailers
• Targeting the Fashion Consumer
• Cross Channel Shopping
• Crossing Product Boundaries
• Fashion and Entertainment
• Counterfeit Merchandise, Ethics and Enforcement of the Law

• Addresses how branding and imaging of fashion, once used for a product or product
line, is now used for the company spokesperson, owner, or representative
• Looks at the industry through a global perspective
• Case studies including company logo and discussion of the company’s impact on
fashion marketing
• Online links throughout the chapter for students and instructors to investigate
fashion marketing around the U.S. and world
• End of chapter elements include: summary, list of key terms, 3-4 assignments,
discussion questions, study questions, and references
• Appendix includes glossary, bibliography and references (both for citations within
text and for further study), index for subject and company

• Instructor’s Guide includes sample course outlines, teaching notes, additional
