PATTERN presents 100 outstanding fashion designers selected by 10 of the field's leading professionals, including designers, stylists, editors, educators, bloggers and writers. Truly global in scope, it has collected the world's most exceptional international young designers from fashion's four capitals – London, Paris, Milan and New York – as well as from other less prominent but no less flourishing centres of activity, such as Sydney, Amsterdam, and Los Angeles.

The 100 fashion designers are arranged in alphabetical order, with each featured on their own two double-page spreads. Combining photographs, sketches, drawings and computer renderings, PATTERN explains the processes behind seasonal collections, as well as showcasing final pieces from the realms of menswear, womenswear, shoes, hats and accessories. Concise, descriptive texts by curators explain the designers' work and the characteristics that make their fashion groundbreaking.

PATTERN is a meticulously crafted book that gives exposure to previously unseen archive material including formative sketches and candid, backstage photographs. Presented in a printed Tyvek shoulder bag, it is a collectors' piece made for the truly style-conscious, as well as an indispensable reference tool for anyone with an interest in fashion.

PATTERN takes its place is a series of surveys identifying 100 of the most interesting, cutting-edge practitioners of key art forms. Earlier surveys include cream and Fresh Cream, for contemporary art, 10x10 for architecture, BLINK for photography, Spoon for design, Area for graphic design, and for fashion, the 2005 success Sample.
