Couture Draping courses

 

Dear customers! Due to ongoing unprecedented social and economic crisis we offer considerable discount on all of our draping courses.

Draping or Moulage is the process of manipulating a flat piece of fabric directly on a three dimensional dress form. The starting point for the developing garment design through draping can be a designer sketch or the process of draping itself. Once the draping is done the fabric is removed from dress form in order to transfer the results of draping onto paper for creating sewing patterns.

Fashion Draping Basics

Fashion Draping Basic online course provides the necessary foundation to  fashion designer. This foundation will enable designer to proceed further with creative draping. Fashion Draping Basics is very detailed academic course.

During the course, the learners produce few basic blocks (sloper patterns) in order to understand the key points of draping techniques and by doing so they will be able to start their own “pattern library”.
