About me

 

http://www.amysuttonatelier.com/ As a graduate of BA (Hons) Fashion Atelier I have gained specific skills with an emphasis on craft, tradition and creativity; innovative design, draping, advanced creative flat pattern cutting, complex garment construction, couture sewing techniques, hand finishing, bespoke tailoring, flou soft sewing, flou fabric manipulation, bias cutting, corsetry, as well as computer aided design and fashion art and design theory. Additionally I have learned a great deal about time management, teamwork, motivation and perseverance. During my employment at Prevu London I have solidified these skills within a working environment, for menswear, womenswear and childrenswear.
