Genuine tailoring skills straight from the expert

Stefan Wimmer explains why we share our know-how in an online sewing class

When we first announced that we’d share our knowledge of the tailoring craft, the reactions ranged from curiosity to criticism, but for us, it was a question of ensuring the future of the trade: as one of the oldest tailor’s shops in the world, we have collected generations’ worth of knowledge and practical experience, passing on this wealth of knowledge to our numerous award-winning apprentices, master tailors and designers over the years. But more often than not, we had to send away qualified and talented people because there are many more applicants than spots. 

„We are becoming more and more aware of this trend. Of course, I am pleased that so many people are interested in this beautiful craft. But at the same time it saddens me that every year we have to reject dozens of qualified applicants who want to learn our beautiful craft.“ – Stefan Wimmer

Thanks to Tailor Academy, the professional online sewing class for all levels, that limitation is now a thing of the past and thousands of people will get the chance at realising their dreams of acquiring professional dressmaking skills straight from the source.
