Dear Diane and Shaded Viewers,
Tailoring is calculated, rational, strict. Drape is unrestrained and unstructured in fluidity. This conflict is exactly what Abigail Jubb explored in her latest collection. Titled Tailoring Versus Drape, Jubb set a beautifully tonal base on which she was able to take this simple concept much further – looking at the social implications of each fundamental design process; their conflicts and similarities, particularly in the traditional cut of a riding habit apron skirt.
Don’t be worried if you don’t know the name, Abigail Jubb. She only just graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in June. Though her maturity and focus in design implies this isn’t the last time I’ll write about her work. In any case, with her focus continuing on cut and form, Jubb is planning to produce a capsule collection exclusively for internet distribution in the coming months.
