High fashion unquestionably goes hand-in-hand with sartorial and stylistic perfection. A driving force behind the entire fashion and garment industry, it represents the search for new solutions concerning fabrics, style, or patterns. In this context, the patternmaker is an essential figure, bringing the stylist's ideas into reality. In our richly illustrated new volume of the Fashion Patternmaking series, the prolific author Antonio Donnanno, an offspring of a tailor family, patternmaking teacher, and director of a fashion school network, describes in detail the methods and techniques used in high-fashion patternmaking in an understandable and step-by-step way.
