PATTERN presents 100 outstanding fashion designers selected by 10 of the field's leading professionals, including designers AF Vandevorst and Preen, stylists Tim Lim and Keegan Singh, educator Heather Sproat, blogger Tavi Gevinson, writer Imran Amed, fashion retail consultant Yasmin Sewell, and the teams behind magazine Fantastic Man and the groundbreaking digital fashion site SHOWstudio. Truly global in scope, it has collected the world's most exceptional international young designers from fashion's four capitals – London, Paris, Milan and New York – as well as from other less prominent but no less flourishing centres of activity, such as Sydney, Antwerp, and Beijing. The 100 fashion designers are arranged in alphabetical order, with each featured on their own two double-page spreads. Combining photographs, sketches, drawings and computer renderings, PATTERN explains the processes behind seasonal collections, as well as showcasing final pieces from the realms of men’s wear, women’s wear, shoes, hats and accessories. Concise, descriptive texts by curators explain the designers' work and the characteristics that make their fashion groundbreaking. A follow up volume to the highly successful SAMPLE, PATTERN is a meticulously crafted book that gives exposure to previously unseen archive material including formative sketches and candid, backstage photographs. It is a collectors' piece made for the truly style-conscious, as well as an indispensable reference tool for anyone with an interest in fashion.
