Schoolwide drape contest

Every year, Bunka Fashion College holds a school-wide draping competition. A somewhat illustrative design sketch (sorry, I don’t have it! ^^;) is passed out, and hopeful drapemasters-in-training has a hand at executing the design sketch to the right proportions. Sound easy? It’s a lot harder than it looks!

35 of the best representations are selected for a final judging show.

Here you can see that even among the top three winners there are subtle differences in length of hem, size of hem ruffle, construction of arm puff, length and volume of “sleeve”, etc. These small decisions are what set them apart from the other applicants, and show their own sense as a designer and technical person. They have interpreted the sketch in their own way in both design details and construction.
