Abstract [en]

This collection is a study about exploration of draping. By highlighting different parts of the female body as a focus to drape dress, this project is exploring the possibilities within draping to shape dress with help from alternative starting points on the body.

This study explores the body as the foundation of dress. This work takes place from research about the female body being a motive within the world of fashion and art to comment on and to understand the interest about the body. At the same time explore how the information about the body can act like guidelines when draping with the aim to find new expressions in dress.

The foundation of this project was conducted in the theoretical method Knowing Through Making and from this a practical study has been developed into a draping session with wet clothes to find form of when the material is integrating with the body and directing the shape.

While this study aims to explore and challenge the technique of draping it is as well a tribute to the female body.
