What is the Haute Couture draping?
Draping is used to create garments on dummy, directly with the final garment fabric or white cotton fabric, without any pattern. Draping is used in the French Haute Couture Houses for creating bespoke clothes, in particularly cocktail and evening dresses, skirts, coats or jackets. Draping lets you change the form and proportions of the garment very easily. You can start creating your own dresses very quickly, after several classes.
Who is this program for?
Founders of luxury evening wear or bridal wear brands, creative professionals, or designers wishing to create high-end haute couture dresses.
