2015 Draping Classes

The Draping Classes

Join Susan Khalje’s Paris-based colleague Julien Cristofoli for classes in the classic French method of draping—the moulage.

Each class will begin with the application of woven tapes (bolduc) onto the dress form— these tapes act as reference points to the corresponding lines that are drawn on muslin. Temporary design lines are then applied to the dress form, and the draping process begins. It is a fascinating and brilliantly effective approach, and Julien is a master of it.

This is a unique opportunity—a chance to learn the authentic French art of the moulage, beautifully rendered and expertly taught by Julien Cristofoli. Please join us this spring for a wonderful learning experience.
