June 25, 2019 - June 25, 2019   


Published on the 25th March 2019 in Drapers, compiled by Kirsty McGregor, our CEO, Jenny Holloway, was asked to comment on the rise in demand for pattern cutters being brought in-house in order to respond to market and improve fit. Jenny said: “Retailers want speed of response and more ownership on trends and designs.”The problem is there is a real skills shortage in this sector. She continues: “Companies such as Next, Marks & Spencer, River Island and ASOS are all investing in 3D CAM systems. We are joining forces with EFI (owners of Optitex) to bring 3D CAD/CAM into our new Tailoring skills Academy [due to open in summer 2019].”
