Thank u for the video ...
Although I need the swag to start
At the top tier and drape to the bottom
tier in one long swag... to run down all three
tier's ... any other videos pertaining to that
Would be great.

Have you attempted to find any yourself? I think Googling fondant swag, or something to that effect is going to yield the same results as anyone else. And depending on how big this cake's tiers are, attaching a long swag in only two points (top and bottom) might not work very well, might be too heavy. Generally they are draped in one direction, attached, draped the opposite direction, attached, and so on.

Yes I have searched many ways and only come up
With swabs that switch directions on the layers.
The customer wants only one long swag that run
s all the way down the cake.

Eh, if that's what they want I guess. I'd be worried it's too heavy without periodic breaks supporting it along the way.

Thank you so much... one of the pictures
in there's looked similar to what I need to do
I feel alot more comfortable now.
Do u use the egg whites or the icing when
u have done this in the past?

I usually use a little piping gel on the back, it hold stuff on really well! I never use egg whites. I've read where other use a little water when it is a fondant cake or a little icing with BC cakes. I hope this help as well.
