How… do you turn a sketch into a garment?

with with Johann Stegmeir, Associate Professor of Theatre and Dance, University of Richmond

Yves Saint Laurent was the first couturier, or creator of one-of-kind garments, to revolutionize his designs and business by creating “rive-gauche” or ready-to-wear pieces. Explore how he made this possible by watching Johann Stegmeir take an idea and turn it into a wearable garment using two different construction processes: patterning and draping. This program is inspired by the special exhibition, Yves Saint Laurent: a Perfection of Style.
