"A dynamic resurgence in sewing and knitting is under way, with many people enjoying making and mending their own garments at home. However, stories abound of homemade clothes languishing at the back of the wardrobe. Amy Twigger Holroyd draws on ideas of fashion, culture and craft to explore makers' lived experiences of creating and wearing homemade clothes in a society dominated by shop-bought garments. Using the innovative metaphor of fashion as common land, Folk Fashion investigates the complex relationship between making, well-being and sustainability. Twigger Holroyd combines her own experience as a designer and knitter with first-hand accounts from folk fashion makers to explore this fascinating, yet under-examined, area of contemporary fashion culture.Looking to the future, she also considers how sewers and knitters might maximise the radical potential of their activities"--Publisher's description.

In an era of increasingly available digital resources, many textile designers and makers find themselves at an interesting juncture between traditional craft processes and newer digital technologies. Highly specialized craft/design practitioners may now elect to make use of digital processes in their work, but often choose not to abandon craft skills fundamental to their practice, and aim to balance the complex connection between craft and digital processes. The essays collected here consider this transition from the viewpoint of aesthetic opportunity arising in the textile designer's hands-on experimentation with material and digital technologies available in the present. Craft provides the foundations for thinking within the design and production of textiles, and as such may provide some clues in the transition to creative and thoughtful use of current and future digital technologies. Within the framework of current challenges relating to sustainable development, globalization, and economic constraints it is important to interrogate and question how we might go about using established and emerging technologies in textiles in a positive manner.

Die japanische Designerin Tomoko Nakamichi betrachtet Kleidungsstücke als Kunstwerke und stellt in Pattern Magic 3, ausgehend von der Dreiecks- und Wellenform, noch mehr extravagante und futuristische Schnittlösungen für professionelle Modedesigner vor. Ihre Oberteile wirken wie Origami-Objekte: Sie bauscht sie zu dreidimensionalen Vielecken auf, öffnet sie wie Blütenknospen an Rücken, Schulter oder Brust, lässt sie in spiralförmigen Volants auslaufen, setzt beutelartige Raffungen an Ärmel und Dekolleté oder schiebt die Schnittteile wie Puzzles ineinander. Auch das Spiel mit gegensätzlichen Farben nimmt sie auf, wenn sie Schnittteile in Schwarz und Weiß ineinander verzahnt und aufbrechende Formen farblich voneinander absetzt. Ihre Techniken erläutert sie Schritt für Schritt in Wort und Bild. Ergänzt wird das Buch mit Maßtabellen und einer Anleitung zur Konstruktion eines Oberteilgrundschnitts.
