Art principles related to draping
In our endeavour to support ECTA CREATIVE SOLUTIONS, we have decided to write a few articles. If you are new to the draping industry and the client comes to you with a specific requirement, then you may not be able to assist the client in the right way. Therefore, if you want solutions related to these situations and want to ask us any question, you may do so by contacting us directly. We are ready to offer you advice on how you can provide draping for your client.
All the repetitions, colours and lines in the draping will be covered in this article. However, please note that this draping is not our work. In fact, I got the photo of draping from a company that sells draping, Aliexpress.
If you were to ask a majority of South Africans about the backdrop, they would certainly feel it a bit too much. Do not be surprised if they feel the draping has too many curtains, swags, etc. I always make it a point to advice my students that the detailing and styles of draping can vary a great deal depending upon the country, area and culture. In South Africa itself, we have brides demanding different kinds of draping for their special occasion. While a Cape Town bride might prefer to have a backdrop of simple style with clean cut, the brides in Durban care a lot about details, colours, swags and draping.
One look at the photo provided here is enough to understand a few things. The backdrop placement, as you can see, does not cover the whole wall area. The idea behind this is to draw your attention towards it, rather than the wall itself.
The principle of repetition is the other thing you will notice strikingly in the photo. One of the fundamental principles of draping is that when you draw a line at the centre of the draping both the sides should look absolutely similar. This is what you will notice when you draw a line in the middle of the picture.
Hope you enjoy your draping!
