Praise For…

"This hefty tome, a follow up to Phaidon's Sample (2005) takes on an almost impossible task: identifying the 100 most influential new designers of the moment. . .The book, presented in a printed Tyvek shoulder bag, offers something for everyone." - Publishers Weekly

"Which young designers will be the next global tastematers? New tome Pattern highlights 100 names currently shaping fashion." - Harpers Bazaar

"Of all the hefty fashion tomes that land with a thump in bookstores this time of year, the vanity monographs have nothing on a good survey of designers who matter. . .Pattern is the follow up to the 2005 Sample, a yearbook of fashion's new generation. . .Pattern reflects its moment. The majority of entrants work in the hot fashion capital of London. There are several of Asian descent, like Jason Wu and Alexander Wang of New York and Xander Zhou of Beijing, but only one, Noritaka Tatehana, from Japan. Showing how quickly fashion changes, there were 15 from Japan in Sample." - Eric Wilson, The New York Times

"Kudos for Phaidon's newest book Pattern -- 10 curators from around the world describe a groundbreaking generation of the most courageous fashion designers. I especially admire those designers whose creativity is combined with sound business acumen." - Adrienne Vittadini, fashion designer

"I love this book. Pattern saves me from having to search a ton of uber-cool websites and blogs to final all the new, cool, edgy and emerging designers around the world. It's a great resource and edited by credible, interesting curators." - Fern Mallis, former Executive Director of the Council of Fashion Designers America

"Phaidon has done it again. . .fashion lovers will devour this hefty four-hundred page book. This is a gorgeous book. . .exactly what you need on your coffee table." -

"Pattern features established designers, well-known emerging labels, and proper newbies. The designers' diverse aesthetics, techniques and outlooks are presented via detailed introductions, backstage, campaign and editorial photographs, and never-before-seen sketches, all of which serve to give readers an in-depth understanding of their work." - Katherine Zarella,

"Covering one hundred designs from the known to the unknown, 10 fashion forces, including Tavi Gevinson, Yasmin Sewell, and the people behind SHOWstudio curate design talent worth talk about. Plus, the hefty book comes with a matching tote-bag carrying case." - FLARE-
