This LCF course provides a highly specialist programme devoted to handcraft tailoring methods. The College and the course have extensive links with Savile Row, the home of bespoke tailoring, and with tailors for bespoke in the West End and Soho. You will learn the skills of design, pattern drafting and tailoring, together with academic, research, industry awareness and presentation skills. This balance ensures that you are fully equipped to take up a number of employment options when you graduate. Projects undertaken with industry include Casual Bespoke with Timothy Everest and Reinventing the Tuxedo with Henry Poole. Recently seven students were selected to exhibit their work on Reinventing the Privy Counsellorâ??s Coatee in Kensington Palace, and a Bespoke Tailoring student won the Collection of the Year at the LCF Fashion Show in Hackney House, Shoreditch. You will be based at Mare Street in Hackney, near to Victoria Park, London Fields and Broadway Market.
