Couture Design: Draping
Spring 2023
Taught By: Caroline Simonelli
Section: A

CRN: 11922

Credits: 3

This course explores the sculptural process of draping and allows students to rethink preconceived notions of how a garment is constructed. Through historical research of couture garments, material experimentation, architectural analysis, deconstruction and the integration of foundational techniques students will learn how to create new foundations to shape garments. Students are encouraged to develop their own methodologies that go beyond basic draping and drafting techniques. The aim is to rethink traditional shapes, seam-lines, finishing and silhouettes and to develop unexpected, transformative ideas that can build the foundation for future concepts, garments and collections.
