This book is a manual on draping or, as it is known in France, moulage. Draping is a three-dimensional design and production technique that generates a considerable degree of freedom. From time immemorial, draping has been a technique frequently used in couture. Specialists Annette Duburg and Rixt van der Tol used their extensive collection of practical manuscripts to provide this book with a clear set of instructions for draping. There are only a limited number of people who are still able to teach the art of draping, which makes this manual decidedly indispensable. It opens up an area that functions as an interesting, supplementary design niche within todays fashion design training.
