drape is something that you will hear a lot of people talking about in terms of garment creation. drape is all about the way the fabric flows or conjuncts or connects with gravity. every fabric will hold gravity different…same as various shapes or lengths will hold the gravity differently.
many people do not think drape is important because they think every fabric is just fabric and design is just algebra.
the real point of drape is the science between the curve and the flat plane or straight line. sometimes that can be perceived as magic especially in the modern day where science and technology interact so completely with this conjecture of curve and line — wave and particle — perception and material.
