This biography and illustrated guide highlights the work of master designer Koos van den Akker and provides inspiration for bold, unique sewing creations. Chronicling the designer's 30 years in haute couture, this book follows van den Akker from his start in the Paris workrooms of Christian Dior to his rise in the fashion world and the establishment of his own Madison Avenue boutique. Included are demonstrations for duplicating several of his construction and design techniques that offer illustrated sewing instructions and intricate details for home sewers to imitate. The designs, with their richness of texture, generosity of color, and dynamic mix of fabrics, share the full scope of van den Akker's masterful creations.

About the Author:

Linda Chang Teufel was an apprentice for Koos van den Akker while attending Pratt Institute. She is the author of Fabric Origami and numerous articles for crafts, sewing, and quilting magazines. She has taught for many sewing manufacturers, guilds, and conferences. She lives in Worthington, Ohio.

Review:

“Formalist descriptions of his works associate him more with the intentions of early 20th-century avant garde movements than to methods of his peers in the fashion world.” —Harold Koda, curator, Costume Institute, Metropolitan Museum of Art
