This outstanding reference work describes in detail every one of the more than 600 fabrics in circulation today and Janet has, after visiting our popular stand at the Textile Forum Fabric Show in London, very kindly decided to include us in the Fabric Sourcing section of her website.
Janet has held many posts in the textile industry and lectures internationally on the subject. She has been a lecturer for more than 25 years in many prestigious schools and universities and also provides training to several retail companies involved with textiles and fashion.
Janet’s impressive book is an invaluable addition to the bookshelf of anyone who works with fabrics, whether for pleasure or as a profession. Comprehensive, easily-accessible and with gorgeous illustrations, the work is published by Thames & Hudson and is marketed across the globe.
Each entry in Janet’s unrivalled sourcebook includes many details about each fabric, from details of its construction and history to a list of typical uses and defining characteristics. The book is a browser’s delight yet is also impeccably cross-referenced and features a thorough bibliography and helpful glossary.
As Platinum Bridal Fabrics supply such a massive range of quality material, we will be featuring in plenty of the website’s Fabric Sourcing sections. We will be listed in no less than 25 categories which include such richly diverse fabrics as lace, satin, Jacquard, Georgette, brocade and lace appliqué.
Janet’s website divides fabric suppliers into General Public, Trade Only and General Public & Trade. Platinum Bridal Fabrics will feature in the General Public & Trade section as our miles of wedding dress material are used by first-timers and seasoned wedding couture designers alike.
You can visit Janet’s website at www.classicandmodernfabrics.com to find out more about her work and obtain a copy of the book, which is a must for anyone with a love for fabric.
