Full course includes pertinent fundamentals such as freehand drawing, color theory, anatomy and apparel design. This comprehensive course arms students not just with fashion sketching skills, but with a strong art-based foundation that enables them to fully develop both talent and aesthetic sense.
The long-established "Slim's Method" has provided students with in-depth lessons in garment construction. The course covers everything from proper measuring techniques to meticulous methods for fitting, and includes patternmaking, drafting, sewing and finishing.
This course was developed in 2014 by Slim’s Fashion & Arts School in collaboration with Newham College in London, whose notable graduates from their Men’s Tailoring course included Alexander McQueen.
Bespoke Tailoring is the highest form of executing men’s clothing. The student will be taught how to create a pattern and sew a jacket, trousers, a shirt and a barong based on custom measurements, fit them on a male form, and finish them by hand.
Aside from Patternmaking and Draping, Tailoring is the third important part of garment construction. Ready-to-Wear and High Fashion houses such as McQueen and Chanel actually use more Tailoring than Patternmaking in most of their collections.
The projects from our Tailoring course can easily be adapted afterwards to the construction of women’s garments.
