About

Overview:

"In Process: A Fashion Designer's Sketchbook" is a unique peak into the process of fashion designer and label, Alexander Michael Snyder (His personal moniker). This compilation of illustrations, fashion development and photography leads you through a journey to a final high end fashion apparel collection. While giving an intimate view into his process, the sketchbook provides insight into apparel design from inspiration, to mixed media sketches, all the way to the complete production of a fully realized collection. This coffee table book will become a collectors book for a series based on the collections of Fall/Winter 2015 and Spring/Summer 2016. The book will also serve to inspire designers and artists on their own journeys of creation in design.

 Above you see the process of ideation to creation. These are different variations of the inspiration allowing Alex to fully realize the potentials of designs through this development process.

This is one of Alex's favorite pages of development from his sketchbook because it is inspired by his skull tattoo and Rorschach prints. His development took shape to create really incredible textiles.

Risks and challenges

The major risk and challenge would be ensuring publishing the authentic intent of the book. Making sure that collectors of this book feel the pulse and heart within the development and imagery of creating a collection. We have already been working hard in finding the proper paper to mimic the sketchbook and its content, how tracing paper will be presented in the book... every detail. We want this book to feel like an original work of art to the early adapting collector.
