Burn-Out Printing : Apparel Printing Definitions Series 2 of 7

Burn-Out Printing : prints that show raised motifs on a sheer ground or base. Made by printing a motif with a chemical on the cloth which has been woven of paired threads of different yarns and then actually burning-out one of the types of fiber-yarns from the area involved. For example, acetone will dissolve acetate in a rayon-acetate fabric and leave the rayon unscathed.

Inaugural Fashion Miracle

I have witnessed a fashion miracle... Well, not an actual miracle. However, it is something miraculous none the less.

Fashionable Inauguration of Barack Obama : Levi Ad

I am NOT at all political. Nor is the fashion industry network to become a way to express political views. I am only posting this image because it is an interesting way of illustrating "fashion" with politics. This image is from the Levi website (you are all familiar with Levi Strauss & Co.)

Levi is currently celebrating the 44th President with a 44% OFF sale (on orders of $150. or more). Not really… Continue

Fashion Relevant Give Away Coming Soon

Never done this before, but I am thinking about a give away for a member of the Fashion Industry Network.

Should it be some sort of contest?

Should I put peoples names into a hat and simply pick randomly?

Should members vote on who on the network deserves a free… Continue

Apparel Magazine

When searching for news and information regarding the Apparel Industry, I would obviously prefer that everyone turn first to Apparel Search. The reason that I select Apparel Search as the first choice is clearly because I have developed that site and it would be foolish of me to suggest another site above my own...

Those of you that have been in the industry for many years, may have memory of an apparel and textile industry magazine called… Continue
