Louise te Poele's Draping photo's at the WinterSalon / location de WAAG Amsterdam until the 30th of January 2011
These pictures of drapes were taken as a promotion for the draping book " Draping, Art and Craftsmanship in Fashion Design'.But also because Rixt van der Tol though
it would be an eternal pity, that her carfully-constructed drapes would end up in a closet and would disappear. There was somthing to be done with them to preserve them, and
we were given carte bland.
Her drapes are not just drapes, they are ingeniously draped reconstructions of the real classics, eg: Dior's " New Look' and ' le smoking' by Yves Saint Laurent. We chose not
to highlight the didactic function fo the drapes, as displayed in the book. But instead show the beauty of workmanship, the calico, chalk and pins, in an aesthetic thimeless manner.
