The Tailoring Atelier: Craft and Heritage

The Tailoring Atelier: Craft and Heritage

Second-year Fashion Atelier students showcase the tradition and rich history of garment construction in their current show titled, The Tailoring Atelier: Craft and Heritage.


“The work in the show continues the legacy of our dear friend and colleague Alan Norris, who sadly passed away just before his return to the course in September,” explained Senior Lecturer of Fashion Atelier, Chip Harris. 

“Alan was a Master Tailor with a wealth of experience and crafted bespoke garments for the royal family whilst working on Savile Row. Alan brought all of this experience to the Atelier course, and we continue to honour Alan’s legacy and passions not only in our approach to the craft of bespoke tailoring but through the development of these heritage skills in contemporary applications.”
