Games of transparencies, movements of matter and body enter into the subtle game of this exercise. Giving the model of the garment its nobility, its cutting technique, its choice of noble fabrics and the dexterity it demands, the drape brings to the garment a notion of work of Art which makes it an exercise in style Prized and magnified by the big names in fashion.
