I am to a Junior Tailor/Seamstress/Cutter with experience in multiple sectors in construction & show rooms, including costume and the fashion universities, mainly based at Central Saint Martins. I am looking to be in the midst of cultivated, accomplished & professional veterans of the fashion industry- purely for my own yearning & exorbitant imagination of design and construction matched up with a need to master my craft. My past experience has been sufficient but erratic, & I am greatly looking for a firm team & mentors to develop my understanding of clothing production. Additionally, I hope I will find a company that will be able to advance my imagination & skills into a substantial vocation.
