Just to let everyone know this coming Saturday (between midday and 4pm) in London there is an open day for an amazing tailoring hub/school called The London Academy of Bespoke. I describe it that way because I am currently attending the coat making section of the school and previously attended the pattern drafting one. It is led by teachers that were trained on and work on Savile Row and have a wealth of experience. As someone that is currently on an apprenticeship I’ve found that it complements my learning no end and helps me with my day to day work. Having said that there are some on the course doing various apprenticeships, others looking for work and some for which it is merely an interest and/or hobby. I think if anyone has the time they should pop down and speak to the team (tried to upload a poster but check the instagram link below for an up to date poster with their address). What I find interesting about this school is that the teachers are really approachable, very open with information, really break down techniques and processes used and have so many future plans for the courses (eg day trips to fabric mills, master classes from different people in the industry covering specific topic such as pockets, sleeves).
