The Intensive Course in 3D Fashion Design-Draping aims at developing fashion designers with a specific technical competence: working directly in three dimensions on the stand. Starting with the study of shape and silhouette, it provides the skills to develop a complete and innovative fashion project. During the 3D design course, students will create a variety of prototypes through the direct approach working on shapes, textures and volumes.
They will be able to explore innovative concepts using a variety of abstract research paths, to inspire the creation of experimental 3D shapes. Inspiration sources will be: the world of art and architecture, historic costume design and avant-garde design.
This course is aimed at fashion designers and students within the fashion environment who are interested in developing and/or enhancing an alternative design technique, using 3D draping to create new volumes.
Enrollment to this course is limited, and admission is determined after an interview.
Lessons will focus on providing knowledge on the following aspects:
- Introduction to teaching method
- Research and moodboard elaboration
- Guidelines identification
- Study of volumes on the stand
- Fabric placement
- Fabric cut, construction and fitting
- Making of the final outfit
