Gail Downey (half of the popular London label Weardowney) and Henry Conway present the philosophy and innovative designs that make up this vintage-inspired, fashion-forward design label. Vogue has said about their designs that they are like "old friends already" and Knit Couture offers twenty patterns based on their acclaimed designs plus an in-depth view of the world of fashion knitwear. One of Weardowney's goals is to teach and inspire by offering modern-day knitters a window into the wider world of knitting---including the history of hand-knitting, the evolution of the medium, and an exploration of the craft within fashion and popular culture today. In addition, twenty designs, which remain true to the design philosohpy of Weardowney, are featured in full-color photography with easy-to-follow instructions.  From smart tunic dresses and tops to elegant cardigans and vintage-inspired skirts and sweaters, the designs are stylish, modern, and awe-inspiring and can be adapted to make them truly one of a kind, just like couture. Boasting a comprehensive history, photography from past and present, stunning illustrations, and twenty exclusive designs, this is an imaginative and informative book that surely will inspire contemporary knitters and fashion lovers alike.
