9th German Edition
This is a vocational book, directed primarily at students of the clothing industry: cutting, sewing, and assembly for fashion and mass markets. However, it will also be found useful in courses for managers and technologists, and as a general reference work. A key feature of the book is its concise and compact design – a prerequisite for summarising such a wide range of material in a single volume. Each page is complete in itself. Particular emphasis has been laid on providing a simple layout and straightforward language, which students will find easy to grasp. Numerous colour diagrams are an effective aid to the comprehension of some of the more difficult topics. These coloured illustrations are a particularly useful feature of the chapters on Fabric Descriptions and the History of Clothing. The book is organised largely according to the different technological sectors, but teaching requirements have also been kept in mind. There are eleven chapters: Fibres, Yarns, Fabrics, Textile Finishing, Fabric Descriptions, Leather and Fur, Clothing Manufacture, Organisation of Clothing Manufacture, Product Design, Product Groups, History of Clothing. The arrangement of topics conforms to the educational guidelines and the current curricula for courses in vocational technology in the German Federal States. An important objective of this publication was to present the extensive body of knowledge as a coherent whole. At all stages, account is taken of the latest scientific findings and the practical experience of the industry, as well as any relevant DIN standards. Improvements for the 9th Edition: The sections on Textile Aftercare, Functional Clothing, Ecology, Seam Types, Health & Safety, and Fusing have been rewritten or extended according to the latest technical developments. Many illustrations have been enhanced by the use of colour or changed to reflect current fashion trends.
