Mannequin Draping for Fashion Designing Students

Mannequin Draping is the technique of positioning and pinning fabric on a dress form to develop the structure of a garment design. A garment can be draped using a design sketch as a basis, or a fashion designer can play with the way fabric falls to create new designs at the start of the apparel design process. It is a great way to seek your ideas and create various innovative designs. After draping, the fabric is removed from the dress form and used to create the sewing pattern for the garment.
Below listed are few photos and videos on how fashion designing candidates from our previous batches explored their fabulous ideas with Mannequin Draping...
