Haute Couture Pattern Making
The concept of Haute Couture as defined by Yves Saint Laurent, Hubert de Givenchy and other well-known exclusive fashion designers, has changed to meet the current market demands. Today, new designers no longer create unique pieces that require a long time to finish and with a large budget, but develop elaborated conceptual pieces maximizing attention to detail and adjusting prices.
This course is for students with a good knowledge of pattern making and garment assembly, who wish to extend their skills making women’s outwear base patterns (on paper), which will allow students to make alterations to a base pattern in order to obtain a correct finished garment, and know how to industrialize the pattern. By making further alterations, student will learn how to adjust a base pattern. This course also includes the complete confection (pattern design, pattern alteration through sizing, cut and confection) of the designs on fabric and the industrialization of the pattern itself.
Our course materials are continuously updated by our specialized teachers on Industrial Pattern Making and Industrial Sizing as well as by professional experts in the fashion industry.
