I'm a 27 year old student from Amsterdam, and will be finished with the studies this summer. Currently I'm looking for a work placement as an apprentice, preferably as a cutter, although I would love coat making as well. I've been to London recently, which was really interesting and I've spoken to many tailors on the Row and elsewhere and spent a day at Anderson & Sheppard's. But it seems hard to get in and find a work placement. I've had some offers, but none were fulltime paid apprenticeships.
Anybody have any tips or advice on companies or places to look? Doesn't have to be in London, I would go anywhere. I just want to find an apprenticeship and be able to learn and improve my skills as a tailor/cutter.
