IFFTI (IFFTI Conference 2010) 2010 business, design, development, conference, fashion industry, fashion education, schools, institutes, technology, cultural
Institutes of learning dedicated for the promotion of Fashion Education are growing in number in all parts of the world. Some of them have acquired name and fame chiefly on account of their commitment and dedication to the cause of the fashion industry. They have developed their own ethos focusing or concentrating upon one or more of the three broad streams of interest vital for the development of the industry. These streams are Design, Technology and Business. While developing an identity of their own, some of them have assiduously cultivated an international character which is at once secular as well as versatile, permitting free flow of thoughts and ideas and cross cultural streams belonging to diverse ethnic groups of the population.

We are a recently formed group of textile designers, bound by a shared vision for the future direction of design. Far from the common perception of textile designers as girls who draw flowers, we are individuals who integrate aspects of material science, fine arts, academic research, storytelling, and product design into our practice. Because this broad understanding of textile design is still considered unconventional, we join forces to create a stronger statement for textiles.

Sonia Delaunay: Fashion and Fabrics Jacques Damase, Sonia Delaunay 1997 art deco, fabric design, robert delaunay, fashion history, book
The Russian-born artist Sonia Delaunay, who with her husband, Robert Delaunay, was a leading light of the Cubist splinter group Orphism, branched out after the First World War into a distinctive career of her own. Between 1920 and 1930, a decade full of activity and success, she produced some of the most striking and original fabric designs of modern times. She was the inventor of abstract design for fabrics, and her materials--brightly colored and filled with geometric patterns--were the rage among fashionable circles in the Art Deco era. Delaunay made imaginative waistcoats for Tristan Tzara, Louis Aragon, Ren Crevel, and other Surrealist poets.
