The Power of Proportion, Mathew Gnagy

26. april 2019 - 28. april 2019

 

Mathew Gnagy vil lære der å konstruere mønster ut fra prinsippene i 1500 talls skreddermanualer, kalt the Bara system. Mathew bruker spesielle bånd med ulike markeringer som utgjør proporsjonene i mønsteret, han kaller det for skreddermanualer, viser hvordan dette skal brukes, og forteller selvfølgelig hvordan han oppdaget denne spesielle måten å lage mønster på. Han vil ta for seg mønster til en 1600 tallets herrejakke. Videre 18- og 1900 tallets mer moderne jakker. Det vil bli diskusjoner rundt de ulike metodene for konstruksjon, også forskjellen på amerikanske og europeisk metode. Videre å gi forståelsen rundt måltaking for å få det beste resultatet, også i elastiske materialer. Det innebærer også spandex tights som han lager til NY city ballet. Det vil bli mer demonstrasjoner fra Mathew`s side enn et sykurs. Alle vil selvfølgelig få lage egne mønstre.

Mathew Gnagy is a professional costumer, designer, and former teacher at Parsons University of Fashion Design in New York City. Best known for his research and skill in drafting and constructing 16th and 17th century-style clothing and for his work in creating distinctive knitting patterns and modern knitted garments, his remarkable clothing is highly prized among both fashion aficionados and historical recreation communities for its aesthetic beauty, authentic feel and famously well-cut and well-crafted execution. Following the success of his first two books: “Knitting Off the Axis: Projects and Techniques for Sideways Knitting”, published by Interweave Press (November 15, 2011), and “The Modern Maker: Volume 1 – Men’s Doublets” which details the construction technique and patterning practice for these renaissance period garments, he has just released The Modern Maker Vol 2: Pattern Manual 1580-1640. He is currently working on The Modern Maker Vol. 3: Pattern Manual Layout Companion and a complete revised and expanded edition of Vol. 1.  Mathew is delighted at the response to the re-creation of a pattern making method from the 16th and 17th century used in Vol. 1. In The Modern Maker Pattern Manual, each draft will be examined, from various doublet styles, to breeches, jackets, gowns cloaks and more.

When Mathew is not teaching or traveling to lecture, he works as a pattern maker for New York City Ballet. He has been a tailor for Film, Television and Stage. He recently wrapped up his fourth season working on the hit TV show, BlueBloods as their tailor, followed by Season 6 of Ray Donovan. More books, more design, and more making are in the future for him.

Mathew can be found online in several historical clothing interest groups, sharing his knowledge and helping people develop the skills necessary to carry them to the next level of their craft.
