My current draping assignment is for a production of 'Turn of the Screw' designed by Paula Ries at CMU. Paula was inspired by this stunning jacket by Alexander McQueen. I will be draping a similar jacket today. The jacket will be made of grey silk dupioni and lined in light blue silk dupioni.
The jacket has this lovely peplum at the back - isn't it great?
The coordinating skirt is a mermaid skirt similar to this one. Of course, the character is very physical in her clothing, even rolling around on the floor, so I'm not sure how much of this might change once we get into fittings.
