What is draping? Draping is an important part of a fashion designers’ development in Fashion. By taking fabric, folding, cutting and pinning it to the mannequin she or he gets a feel for how the design will look & how the fabric will move.

The aspiring fashion designers will learn how to pin and drape the fabric on the mannequins to show off their designs in 3-dimensional form!
