Research is key to every successful design-related project.

Research and Design leads you through the essential stages of research in order to be better equipped to explore your design ideas. It explains the importance of identifying your target market and the need to understand the different levels and genres of fashion before setting out on the process of creative research. The book then explores the many avenues for researching and the need to set a theme, concept or narrative to your collection.
