"Corset(bustier) draping design & redesign" course provides skills and knowledge for corset design, corset construction/draping and pattern creation.
The course starts from introduction of corset development throughout fashion history going as far as 16 century and gives an overview on the contemporary interpretation of this unique clothing item by influential fashion designers presenting the latest trends as well as iconic pieces.
The first part of the course “Draping of basic bodice-bustier” will equip students with practical steps of creating off-shoulder basic bodice/bustier patterns through draping techniques. The patterns can be further used for corset development, for strapless dress as well as a foundation of strapless bodice where additional underlying support is needed.
The second part introduces the designing process which starts from either just an idea or from a sketch. The process is rather intuitive as you create a prototype directly on a dress form following your inspiration, observing the work - proportions, shape, contour, lines etc. The work ends up with a set of patterns as well.
The third part provides an inspiring and exciting opportunity of using the existing patterns of the corset and re-design, re-construct the corset into a new style on a dress form. This process will be also completed with a set of patterns for the new corset style.
The course is addressed to a wide audience - from “beginner” level to professionals - designers and educators alike.
