London, Paris, Milan, Madrid, Berlin, Tokyo, and New York, or in
less-trafficked cities, today's most forward-thinking textile
designers showcase exciting work that signals newdirections in
textile practice and the emergence of new textile forms and fiber
technologies. The book not only features images of completed
designs, but also previously unseen archive material, such as
work-in-progress photographs and digital drawings. These unique
visuals create a stylish picture of today's textiles, as well
as an essential reference guide for those interested in
contemporary textile design.
