MDIS Tashkent Draping Workshop
Just like how the fashion industry has become globalised, MDIS has also done its part to broaden the perspectives of our student community. This time, the MDIS School of Fashion and Design (SFD) hosted a workshop to welcome visiting students from MDIS Tashkent, spanning across different faculties. With many new to the world of fashion and design, everyone came together to learn the basics of the rapidly changing and exciting field of fashion.
Technique of the Day – Draping
The international students were introduced to one of the fundamental techniques of fashion – draping. This skill involves the process of positioning and pinning the fabric on a dress form to create a pattern. The draping pattern design is essentially the art of wrapping fabric around the desired form and fastening it into a particular shape. Draping allows designers to turn their design ideas into reality by manipulating fabric directly on the dress form in three dimensions according to the curves of a human figure.
The Challenge Begins!
With the technicalities of the draping design process conducted by SFD team, the MDIS Tashkent students were put up to the challenge of draping their first garment at the fashion studio. The hands-on workshop helped to better equip students on how to work with the fabric directly and see the effect of the adjustments they made. The students then had an opportunity to present their garment construction to the rest, making the workshop a fun opportunity for them to learn with one another.
