I was recently introduced to Monica Macha, the creative force behind a new custom drapery company called Drape Couture. She designs custom window treatments inspired by runway fashion. In the picture below a model is "wearing" a drapery panel from Monica's reversible lined drapery collection.
Drape Couture offers several different heading options and can customized a one of kind drapery collection for retail stores.
New to the line are decorative tie backs with exotic flourishes made from feathers and silk flowers.
The fabric selection is predominantly silks and a variety of coordinating trims are available.
Pillows and bedding are available as well as a children's collection. Monica is currently working on a line of drapery inspired by men's wear that will be constructed of pinstriped wools and wool solids.
The companies main focus is on reversible double sided drapery panels. I think they have a great idea however currently they are only offering silk fabrics which are not appropriate for exposure to sun. I would have to recommend a separate liner panel to protect the fabric from sun rot and fading. I'm looking forward to following their progress and seeing how they continue to emulate fashion in their designs.
