Why the Fashion Workshop is unique and exclusive? 2018-11-01T17:08:24+00:00

It is the only occasion you will have in a lifetime to see an Italian designer at work.

you will learn: fabric cutting, how tailors work, the importance og body proportions and measurements, theoretical notions of finished garments, and other important sartorial topics.

So, what does Tailor Master work consist of? Let’s see what you will experience during the Fashion Workshop step by step.

Everything starts with the textile selection. The Tailor Master, according to the customer needs and tastes, shows one by one the most suitable textiles for the season and, of course, for the item of clothing to realise. For this reason, colours and measures are not the only aspects to consider when creating bespoke items.

After textile selection, it is time to study the customer body. This is a crucial step that has to be done carefully, in order to take body measurements properly. As we are talking about customised items of clothing, this is the most important step ever. Every effort is made to note down body measurements in the most accurate way, otherwise every mistake will appear on the finished bespoke items.

After taking measurements, everything is recorded on a paper pattern that shows the bespoke item project. Only at this point, using the paper pattern as model, the Tailor Master is ready to cut the textile and, then, to sew all the pieces of cloth together.
