In Fashion Design, students learn about the basics of fashion design while studying professional fashion practices. Students draw croquis', sew, and construct garments.
Fabric draping is the process of positioning and pinning fabric on a mannequin or dress form to develop the structure of a garment. Fabric drape is defined as the way that fabric falls to the floor. Fabric bias, rigidity, stiffness, type of fabric, weight, and thickness can all be factors in determining drape. Many professional fashion designers use fabric draping to design garments (and then usually leave the dirty work to interns or other workers!).
