From the Publisher. Accessories are vital in every fashion collection today and John Lau’s new book examines four items from concept to production: bags, footwear, jewelery and millinery. It looks at construction techniques and the essential tools of the trade used in modern accessories design, including 2D pattern and 3D modeling techniques. It also examines both hand-finishing and machine embellishment.

This title is filled with images of beautiful accessories to inspire young designers. It is essential reading for fashion students and all those interested in accessories design. The book also includes a whole chapter on small accessories (eyewear, scarves, ties, wristwatches, belts and gloves). It features contributions from the likes of Philip Treacy, whose sculptural hats have adorned the heads of royalty and supermodels alike, along with other contributors Bill Amberg, Arnoldo][Battois, Marloes ten Bhömer, Christina Brodie, Claire Goldsmith, Stephen Jones, Michelle Lowe-Holder, Georgina Martin, Beatrix Ong and Justin Smith.
