Menswear and tailoring

How to become a tailor

Menswear and tailoring is a trade with a long history that requires specific knowledge and expertise. Recently, menswear and tailoring is more in fashion and new brands are emerging.

Although there are many education programs focused on fashion, a focus on menswear and tailoring was missing.

New education program

Together with MBO college Hilversum of ROC Amsterdam we explored the opportunities of starting a new program, aligned with the needs of the industry.
Based on interviews with industry leaders in the Netherlands and a co-creation workshop we drafted a blueprint for the Menswear and Tailoring program.

After a successful pilot, this program is now heading towards its second year. HaveĀ a look at the video to learn more about the students, business partners and the program itself!
