MASTER IN WEDDING DRESS – PATTERN MAKER
Master – Milan
The course aims to train fashion designers specializing in wedding dresses. The training course starts from the study of anatomy and silhouette to then study the proportions, fit and volumes up to the individual details that make up the model, studying the modeling techniques for bodices, bustiers, collars and sleeves, skirts and petticoats, etc. .
After having developed the standard models, we begin to realize various types of variants, then move on to the realization of prototypes on canvas, studying fabrics, materials (which are generally very precious and delicate) and the most suitable processes. Many exercises are carried out concerning the development and design with the aim of forming a model maker with a high technical preparation, capable of interpreting and impeccably implementing the ideas of the stylist or client for whom he works.
Special attention is then paid to the study of details and accessories, such as stoles, veils, shawls etc … very important to complete the dress.
The course focuses more on the design of paper patterns and prototypes. It is therefore essential for the student to have in-depth knowledge of tailoring, hand and machine wrapping techniques as well as women’s priest-à-porter modeling.
