Leather Fashion Design is a practical, how-to book about making garments from leather, suede and similar materials. It covers everything from what to look for in choosing a skin to work with, through pattern-cutting, sewing techniques and finishing. The final chapter includes working with 'leather-like' materials including ultrasuede and faux patent leather.

The book starts with a showcase of leather apparel spanning time, but concentrating on the twentieth century. Beautifully illustrated with examples of leather apparel at its finest as well as clear step-by-step illustrations of how to make various types of garment, and a comprehensive resources section listing relevant organizations, publications and other information, this book will be invaluable for both students and professionals.
