The Print Revolution

October 6, 2013

There is nothing better than sitting down on a Sunday to enjoy a nice book and a cheeky sweet offering in the form of a chocolate and sprinkled covered doughnut. I had kindly been sent a copy of The Print Revolution, written by Tamasin Doe who started her career as deputy fashion editor at the Evening Standard and then went on to become Fashion Director of InStyle magazine. She has also enlisted the help of fashion designer Mary Katrantzou as the foreword author, Mary is famous for her printed images used in her designs.

The book highlights the ground breaking textile design in the digital age, showcasing the pops of colour and bold prints that are the result of the new ease of computer printing in fabric design. An A-Z of the key designers who are using digital printing in fashion today, focusing on the amazing prints we have seen from designers such as Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbanna, Holly Fulton, Prada and Matthew Williamson just to name a few. I absolutely love these digital printed skirts by Fabitoria which are featured within the book.

The photographs in this book are fantastic and show the intricate details, patterns, fabrics and embellishment used by each designer accompanied by Tamasin’s insight into the designers use of printing from her own notebooks, impressions, quotations and influences.

The perfect book for any fashion student or fashionista, the doughnut was pretty good too 😉
