Third edition soon available!
This book is an orderly manual that opens up an area that functions as an interesting, supplementary design niche within today’s fashion design. Collected by two Dutch experts in this craftsmanship: Annette Duburg and Rixt van der Tol.
It includes the historical context of draping, contemporary examples by fashion designers, a large section on all aspects of draping (of all clothing components on the most common variations) and the use of draping by well-known fashion designers from 1900 to the present day.
Draping is a three-dimensional design and production technique that generates a considerable degree of freedom in terms of design. Freedom in restraint, as the fabric has to envelop a dress stand and because the design has to be readable and able to be transferred to a pattern. Draping is a technique frequently used in couture.
Draping - Art and Craftsmanship in Fashion Design will be presented at the symposium Beyond Green II, World Fashion Centre Amsterdam on November 12th 2008.
Available in English and Dutch (Moulage - Kunst en vakmanschap in modevormgeving)
