Fashion Futures 2013: Designer Drapers

The first week of Fashion Futures workshops is very much about preparing students for the creative journey ahead. After some serious life drawing, next comes mark making in a 3D form – draping on the stand.

With just a sheet of fabric and some pins, the teenagers have two hours to create as many different designs as they can. The results,  which are more catwalk couture than fancy dress toga,  really help them to understand the key principles behind designing for a person.

Look out for more updates from the Fashion Futures 2013 workshops coming soon! In the meantime see what last year’s students had to say about their FAD experience here.
