Draping. Art and craftsmanship in fashion design is a manual on draping or, as it is known in France, moulage. Draping is a three-dimensional design and production technique that generates a considerable degree of freedom. From time immemorial, draping has been a technique frequently used in couture. The current revival of the art of draping is the reason why the Arnhem Academy, whose trademark is production and finishing, decided to publish this book in collaboration with ArtEZ Press. Specialists Annette Duburg and Rixt van der Tol used their extensive collection of practical manuscripts to provide the book with a clear set of instructions for draping. There are only a limited number of people who are still able to teach the art of draping, which makes this manual decidedly indispensable. It opens up an area that functions as an interesting, supplementary design niche within today’s fashion design training.
