From Azzedine Alaïa, Cristóbal Balenciaga, and Coco Chanel, to Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, and Vivienne Westwood, a century’s worth of fashion greats from the permanent collection of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology are celebrated in this limited-edition volume. Photographs of over 500 garments selected from the Museum’s permanent collection illuminate each of the featured designers, while texts by the curators explain why each designer is important in fashion history and what is special about the individual pieces featured.

In her introductory essay, director and chief curator Valerie Steele writes about the rise of the fashion museum, and the emergence of the fashion exhibition as a popular and controversial phenomenon; and both Steele and contributor Suzy Menkes provide a history of this museum’s role in the world of fashion scholarship and preservation. Fashion Designers A - Z is available as a series of six Designer Editions. Each edition (a total of 11,000 copies) is bound in a fabric created by one of six designers Akris, Etro, Stella McCartney, Missoni, Prada, and Diane von Furstenberg and comes in a Plexiglas box.

Crafted by hand at a bindery in the heart of Italy, and stamped with a unique number, every copy is an instant classic, and an addition to your fashion library that is truly one-of-a-kind. The Stella McCartney Edition of 2,000 numbered copies is adorned with a Neon Abstract Print on cotton satin from her Summer 2013 collection available in two different palettes. True to McCartney’s modern, fresh, style, the prints pop with color and sensuality. Orders placed online will be fulfilled with one of the pictured Stella McCartney fabrics.

The growth of design schools seems unstoppable. Designers born after 1980 have a totally different view of visual culture, aesthetic products, creative vision, and history from that of their predecessors. Communication aesthetics are in an ever-temporary state; design has become a dynamic and unstable area.

All these developments pose new questions to the status of the designer and the trade. With visual contributions, quotations, and short essays from dozens of international designers, thinkers, critics, and strategists, this book presents a new manifesto for the design economy of 2010 and beyond.

In this book, the author presents a new vision of learning through design and production, and describes computer programming as a source of a learning and design power. As means of studying this extended notion of children's programming, the author implemented "Instructional Software Design Projects" to explore the learning that takes place when students develop complete mathematical software products designed for other students in their school. The results demonstrate that the young designers learned not only about mathematics (fractions) and programming (Logo), but also about design and user interfaces, as well as representational, pedagogical, and communicational issues.
