Course Description

This exclusive one year course provides students with a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of Garment Technology. It is taught two days per week and you will study the entire life-cycle of a garment, starting from the initial development with Designers and Buyers, through to the fitting and testing process, and then into mass production. This course is extremely hands-on, which will give you plenty of opportunities to get creative.

What is Garment Technology, and what does a Garment Technologist do?

A Garment Technologist is responsible for ensuring that garments make it from concept all the way through to the shop floor. This requires working closely with designers and buyers. A Garment Tech is in charge of making sure the selected garment fits perfectly and that details are consistent through all sizes to ensure they reach the stores to the quality standards set by the retailers. Fabrics selected by designers need to be suitable for the styling and wash care requirements set by the retailers so that the styles are fit for purpose.

A Garment Technologist makes important decisions during the creation of a garment and holds key responsibilities such as:

  • Advising on the right fabrics to use
  • Suggesting changes to patterns and designs
  • Making sure manufacturing of a garment remains in budget
  • Overseeing fabric testing and fit sessions
  • Working with samples to balance designer’s/buyer’s vision with budget, fit and manufacturing needs

Garment Techs must be aware of current trends, budget and any manufacturing constraints. To excel in this role, good communication skills are essential as well as an eye for detail. For example, small details such as embroidery, trims and zips can affect fit and therefore need to be scaled for different sizes.
