Just for Andrea

Today's link: The Institute of Draped Clothes

I hear what you're asking: But Why?
Draping clothes is a volatile art. It relies entirely on personal knowledge and creativity. We are not sure, today, how people in antiquity draped their costumes. Many ancient ways of draping saris are forgotten today. If no institution starts research today, the art may soon vanish completely. Draping is a most ancient and widespread form of clothing, used by billions of people all over the word. It is part of mankind's heritage. We must give it its right place and recognition. Draping is fun! Draping is an accessible and rewarding creative endeavour.
Who knew? A volatile art indeed.
