Perfect Draping by Thakoon
The great Couturiers of the last century created their Haute Couture looks by cutting, draping, and pinning fabric designs on mannequins before recreating them in chiffon, silk, or other exclusive materials on life-size models.
Today these classic techniques of perfect craftsmanship are still in use...
… by tailors and seamstresses of the famous Couture Houses who perfectly recreate the looks which have been drawn before by the brands designers. Of course there are still several top designers like Azzedine Alaia, Issey Miyake or Haider Ackermann creating their new looks under the classic method.
Below you´ll find a short video showing how Thakoon Panichgul, the great designer behind the brand of Thakoon, uses this brilliant technique to create one new look of his F/W 11 collection. Indeed not only a perfect drawer & illustrator but a real Couturier. To see more of Thakoon just visit his portfolio site we strongly recommend.
