Text This wonderfully illustrated book, written by two experts on revolutionary textiles, describes new fabrics (including those made of metal, glass, or ceramic yarns) and their amazing properties. It explains the design processes for making clothes that mimic the carapace of an insect, are seamless, or have venting systems. It also includes the latest fashions that owe their stylish futuristic look to the innovations of sportswear, and is completed by a glossary of technical terms and a directory of designers and manufacturers. 260 photographs and illustrations, 256 in color.
