Course description

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.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The UK has a proud reputation as a centre of design excellence, and last year, design was behind only nursing in the number of graduates from UK universities with nearly 13,700. Not all areas of design have been affected equally by the recession, so bear this in mind when you look at the stats. At the moment, things are looking a little better for fashion and textile designers and not as good for interior or multimedia designers – but that may change by the time you graduate. In general, design graduates are more likely than most to start their career in London. This also varies by subject – fashion designers often find jobs in the North West. Some employers in the field, particularly in London, are a little prone to asking graduates to work for free, so while it’s not the norm – one in nine design graduates from 2012 starting design jobs in London were working unpaid – it does go on.
