"Technical Sourcebook for Designers” Book Launch Party

To remain in-sync with current trends in apparel manufacturing practices, design students need to understand principles of technical design, such as how construction influences design, how to conduct a fit session, and how to write concise instructions for prototypes and revisions. Technical Designer's Sourcebook will provide students with essential techniques, principles, and terminology related to current apparel production technology and manufacturing practices. Through practical exercises and the authors own industry experience, the book will integrate the fundamental knowledge that students have gained in their design courses with the technical design skills they ll need to demonstrate in an apparel manufacturing firm. FGI is proud to present a book launch party for the authors of the "Technical Sourcebook for Designers" written by local fashion industry insiders Jaeil Lee and Camille Steen.
