Salvatore - Intermediate Tailoring
Originally from Italy, Salvatore initially studied tailoring in his home country where he developed a passion and skill for the handcrafted technique. He soon discovered however that it was in London where he could gain hands-on experience on how the real heritage industry works.
He chose the Fashion Technology Academy (FTA) due to our emphasis on industrial tailoring techniques and our unique learning experience within a factory environment and being taught by a former Savile Row tailor. He said the way we work in London is much more efficient, we are able to create the patterns and make amendments much quicker making the whole process much more seamless ultimately saving time and money but not compromising on the technique or quality of the finished garment.
"Rebecca is a very good tutor, she has taught me secrets and tricks of the trade I would never have learnt before this course."
Salvatore completes the 18-week course next month and his plans are to move back to Italy where he now feels much more confident in his ability to achieve a successful career as a tailor. It has been fantastic to have Salvatore on the course, we can't wait to see what he will go on to achieve!
