On the designer look pages of women’s fashion, we present the latest blazer trends. Big stays, extra short comes, but there is so much more to discover! The new ideas for blazer design are many and varied. Elegance continues: from page 8 it gets festive too. Read what brides around the world are wearing on their big day. Learn more about bridal fashion in different cultures: from traditional costumes to modern gowns, the range of wedding dresses is wide. In the Pattern Technique you will find instructions on the pattern construction of three enchanting wedding dresses. We pick up on current bridal trends and show here the patterns for a one-shoulder dress, a fishtail dress and a dress with a flowing skirt and cut-outs. Less about celebration and tradition and more about future-oriented aspects of the garment industry were the topics at the first Munich Fabric Start this year. The keywords efficiency, transparency, digitalisation and sustainability sum up the contents of the trade fair in a nutshell. We ask Sebastian Klinder, Managing Director of Munich Fabric Start, what exactly these topics are all about, how the textile industry is changing and how the trade fair reflects all this.
On the menswear designer look pages, things are “rocking”. Here we present the men’s skirt as shown on the runways this season. It is not the first attempt to establish the skirt for all, but never have the times been so socially ready for it as they are now. Man or woman have long ceased to be rigid orders of the human species. Fashion reflects the search for the appropriate look. Afterwards, tailor Julian Weyand tells us about his preference for checked fabrics. He explains to us how he incorporates economy into traditional tailoring and how craft traditions can be brought into today’s world without compromising the high quality standards of bespoke tailoring. In the pattern section, we show men’s shirts with a love of detail. You will find instructions on four pattern constructions of the shirt. From page 22 we continue with the Pitti Immagine Uomo in Florence, one of the great highlights of men’s fashion. Anyone who is anyone in the menswear business has to be there for the big show, when the latest trends are presented in the Fortezza da Basso, hip designers present their collections and numerous events at the fair invite inspiration and exchange. We report on the appearance of the special guest Martine Rose, which relevant trends we were able to spot and what new additions there were for the fashion fair. Finally, in the article “Fashion without gender boundaries”, we shed light on the trend towards clothing that cannot and should not be clearly assigned to one gender. Gender neutral fashion, non-binary fashion, unisex fashion: there are many terms for this style of clothing. More and more designers are creating collections for all identities. The Swiss designer Julian Zigerli has his say here and tells us how he came to design gender-neutral fashion.
The enclosed pattern basic-underwear contains two sets with bustier and slip for women (in European sizes 36 – 50).
