Bridalwear
by Samantha - September 2016

I attended this course last Christmas and it was so good it has enabled me to start my own bridal dress business. The tutor was very friendly, informative, experienced and professional. I loved the fact that the course was so practical as I have found that textbooks whilst often good don't teach the professional secrets or finishing touches. The course was well taught with good balance between teacher guidance and time for you to practise the techniques being taught and have any mistakes/ misunderstanding caught and corrected. You make many toiles so that you can tackle almost any design of gown and finish a couple of items so that you have experience of the finish required for a wedding dress. The course would enable you to take a picture or client brief and then design and make the gown creating your own pattern and customised fit. Amazing, I loved every minute and without it and the tutor I wouldn't be doing a job I love.

Bridalwear
by Jordan - September 2016

I did this course in the summer of my second year into my costume production course as I have a love for Bridalwear and it's not something that was covered as part of my costume degree. I thorpughly enjoyed the whole course and learnt so much in such a short space of time! It was well planned out and covered all aspects from coming up with an inital design to final creation of different bridalwear aspects. Christina was an absolutely lovely tutor who went above and beyond to help me, not only whilst I was on the course but also even when I had questions and wanted to learn more after having completed my weeks at London college of fashion. I highly recommend this course to anyone with a passion for Bridalwear and good base sewing knowledge- you will get so much out of it!
