Fashion Futures
Bradley Quinn

Today fashion is moving forward at a faster pace than ever before, with advancing technologies and new materials reinventing clothing as we know

it. Futuristic garment designs are often inspired by surprising sources: biological science, climate change, space suits, artificial intelligence, genetic engineering and nanotechnology. Fashion Futures offers a fascinating

survey of these new directions, charting the transformational products, design processes, maverick materials and groundbreaking practitioners that are revolutionizing fashion. Design expert Bradley Quinn also explores radical retail operations, fashion forecasting and the relationship between fashion 

and other disciplines. Featuring inspirational interviews with international trend forecasters and designers, and packed with illustrations of extreme designs and prototypes, Fashion Futures is a thought-provoking overview

of how fashion will look, perform and be manufactured and purchased in the twenty-first century. 

A wide-ranging survey of the visionary clothing designs, new materials, cutting-edge technology and emerging trends shaping the future of fashion 

Features interviews with leading designers and trend forecasters, among them Hussein Chalayan, Iris van Herpen and Anne Marie Commandeur 

Includes a directory of practitioners and researchers at the forefront of fashion technology and design
