Description

For a young designer creating a look for a runway show can be an exciting and challenging process. Working with a model and achieving good fit and balance is often a time consuming and frustrating endeavor for a student with limited experience. Working with seven freshman enrolled in a draping class who had only one previous studio design class, we offered them the opportunity to have a custom half-scale dress form made of their model, allowing them to drape on the actual body they would be fitting.
