Our 30 Redress Design Award 2018 semi-finalists will soon be getting their hands on some fabulous sustainable fashion titles to boost their knowledge and skills, courtesy of our Prize partner and leading global publisher, Bloomsbury Visual Arts. In celebration, Bloomsbury are offering an exclusive 25% discount on all fashion titles to our network, and there are a multitude of useful titles for fashion professionals!  

At Redress, we have a few go-to books that we would recommend to anyone looking to find out more about sustainable design - A Practical Guide to Sustainable Fashion, and Zero Waste Fashion Design both of which have been written by Redress Design Award Advisors. Our new favourite is Fashion Fibers, Designing for Sustainability, a must for new brands navigating the options of fibres on the market today.

Over the past year Bloomsury have been busy releasing even more helpful books such as the new edition of The Fundamentals of Fashion Design and 200 Skills Every Fashion Designer Must Have (authored by a Head of Design at ASOS), to more specific skills guides such as for MenswearFashion Drawing and Construction for Fashion Design.

They have also recently released a second edition of Pat Parish’s go-to guide Pattern Cutting, which now includes new step-by-steps for more complex patterns, more coverage of sustainable pattern cutting innovations and how to work with different fabrics, such as neoprene.

If you are interested in learning how to write about fashion, Fashion Journalism is a great resource on styles from reviewing shows to fashion blogging. They also have some great new books about the evolution of fashion design, not least the paperback release of Fashion Game Changers, which explores the reinvention of the 20th century silhouette from the hourglass to the avant-garde.
