The Fashion & Technology Program at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Vancouver, Canada, will be hosting us for a major dose of pleating. Pleating is the big crossover technique from studio to industry since it solves all the fit issues, scales up like magic and always delivers the design wattage expected from couture. Learn textile pleating manipulation with unique methods for entire garments or fabric, studio or factory. Use techniques such as the Issey Miyake collapsible method, PVC pipe pleating, pleater boards, heat, dye and more.
(Option A) Saturday, May 11, 9am – 4pm,
Kwantlen University, Richmond Campus, 8771 Lansdowne Rd, Vancouver, Canada
