The amazing drapo!

This should get your hands in the mood for draping tomorrow!

While this video is a bit corny (thanks to the music) please take this man seriously. He is The Amazing Drapo!! He does beautiful work considering he’s not cutting or sewing the fabric at all. He is allowing each piece of cloth to tell him what to do, and creates the garment right there on the models body.

Also, keep in mind that draping does not rely only on memorizing the process of creating certain fundamental forms (ie. princess line dress), but is more reliant on the physical memory of the maker, and the intuitive understanding of the relationship between cloth, body and gravity.

Have fun with it!
