Starting any business is hard work, especially when there are so many others trying to do the same thing you are. The only difference is the quality of the work and the creativeness. Now, in the beginning we had an idea of what to do, but aren’t afraid to admit, we needed some type of help. That’s where this book comes in.
Jeff Finley’s ‘Thread’s Not Dead’ is a designer’s guide to the apparel industry. The book is just that, jam packed with pro’s and con’s of the business. The steps you should take and the order to take them. The insight is given in a wide range of topics, from freelancing to techniques to various tutorials.
From cover to cover this book is filled with useful information to help any apparel business get up and running. The book is written by Jeff Finley but has contributions from many different artists and web links.
It is a very inspirational read, once you pick it up you don’t want to put it done until you are finished. It does a great job of including advice and tips from small upstart indie clothing lines, to some of the most well known apparel companies of today including Johnny Cupcakes, Obey, ILTHY, Glamour Kills etc.
