It is exhaustive and presents the most eye-catching pieces from the list of the world’s fashion designers. One thing to note which isn't a negative, just a heads up, this book is British and as such, many of the fabric names have slightly different spellings and in one or two instances a different name.

You can read pages and pages about a fabric’s qualities, but nothing is quite so telling as touching a swatch! To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. It makes me wonder if there could be other mistakes that would go unnoticed if the reader didn’t know what to look for? There are a multitude of both natural and synthetic fibers covered here, even some odd ones you wouldn't expect. I have read some reviews where readers primarily focused on the fabric—touching, feeling it, and critiquing it.Given that a lot of the work was done for me already, I really like how this book took a large chunk of work away from me.

The spiral-bound pages within the cover are anchored thereto with only a piece of paper and it won't be long before that tears and comes apart, too. Amanda Johnston is an associate lecturer in design and product development on the BA Fashion Products course at London College of Fashion. I am lucky enough to have a first edition of this book, so I don’t need to be in the drawing, but I want to say that I love having it on hand and have used it countless times to check the difference of fabrics.I get that the color coded tabs along the sides of the pages are supposed to act like this but it's not as quick or accurate as an index would be. This updated version of the bestselling Fabric for Fashion: The Swatch Book, includes additional swatches, new close-up photography to show fabrication, yarn windings as well as finished fabric swatches and more! I’m not sure I could’ve named 25 different types of fabric, let alone 125, before picking up this book!
