Apprentices Attend a Second ‘Fit Surgery’ with Helen Walczak

On Monday 14th November, five Fashion and Textiles Product Technologist apprentices took part in a ‘Fit Surgery’ session with Helen Walczak.

This is the second ‘Fit Surgery’ with Helen, who has 30+ years working in the fashion industry, focussed on garment technology and is highly experienced in sourcing, CSR, technical and currently works as a Quality Director.

Helen’s industry experience is invaluable and she was able to share her knowledge and skills with this small group. The apprentices looked at rejected garments to diagnose the issues and identify what amendments would need to be made, what that would look like on a pattern, how to deal with mistakes made by a factory and the interlinings that would be required for each garment.
