Subject Description

This subject aims to expand student’s knowledge of advanced garment construction techniques through manipulation of fabrics on the three dimensional form. Couture hand finishing techniques will be used to apply  fabric that has been manipulated through French Draping, onto a structured undergarment. While the primary focus is on producing a couture garment using specialized construction techniques, other fashion applications such as fabric properties and manipulation are explored to support concurrent major projects in the school of fashion design.
