Creative Draping repositions the importance of draping as a creative tool for the contemporary practitioner. This essential book examines the historical relevance of the haute couture houses of central Europe and their legacy on modern-day apparel, exploring the techniques developed by the great masters, before leading readers through the basic draping exercises, processes and approaches that they will need to understand in order to successfully practice the craft.
The book takes a unique approach to contemporary draping and crucially argues for the need to design for three-dimensional silhouettes. Creative modelling and self exploration through design are encouraged in this visually stimulating book, which features case studies with key practitioners of contemporary draping.
