Fashion is the most versatile discipline and is becoming popular day by day in India. This book has been designed to cater to the needs of Fashion Design / Technology students, freelance designers / dress makers, and enthusiastic learners from non-fashion background. It is suitable for the beginners who have just started taking interest in fashion design concepts. It is useful in diploma & degree programmes, short term certificate courses and training workshops. This book is an outgrowth of the lectures I gave every year to the students from 2003 to 2011. It deals with basic concepts of language of fashion design. This is not just a book; it is a learning material. You are not a reader, but a learner. A reader is passive while reading, whereas a learner is active while learning. Learning happens when you actually do a thing. This book does not intend to make you ?handicap? or dependent by providing ready instructions in bulk. It seeks to take you out of the passive reading mode and helps you get started working on the language of fashion design.
