Ask The Fashion Professor

Today we have two questions from our readers - first, from Scotty:

Dear Professor,

What is the difference between pattern and texture in fabric? I know that, for example, corduroy is texture, but what would, say, herringbone be?

Thank you for your time!


And another from Ellen K:

Every time I hear 'silhouette' I think of shadow, which is not, I gather, what is meant in fashion terms. Is the silhouette how tightly the garment fits, viewed
from the front?
Thanks, again! you're really educating the non-fashionista crowd, here.
Ellen K.
