All products are based around and inspired by luxury, high-end fashion pieces and seasonal trends that are seen on the catwalks of New York, London, Milan & Paris twice a year during biannual Fashion week.
TPC is for those who are interested in fashion and who are looking for a stylish and unique feel to the product. Those who are beginners wishing to take up a new creative hobby. And the existing experienced home dress makers. But most importantly those with a love for fashion without the high price tag.
The team will be offering online support in the form of tutorials, and we have a fun blog covering trending topics and sewing tips. We can also be found on numerous social media outlets. So you can engage directly with us so we can assist in the production of a pattern and share with us your final garments. We would love to see and share all of them!
We also want to hear from you for your feedback and seasonal suggestions for the trends you want to be turned into our next patterns.
DIRECTOR LUCY SINNOTT
My upbringing was creative from day one, having an Artist father, I started making clothes when I was 13 and have been creating ever since. Im an obsessive collector of haberdashery nicknacks that will be used one day. And a lover of all things Fashion, from clothes to accessories.
After completing an art foundation course, it was during my Fashion Design degree where I developed a passion for pattern cutting. I earned a 1st BAhons, and then went immediately on to enrolling in the Pattern Cutting Postgraduate course at the prestigious Central Saint Martins. It was there that I had the best mentoring and guidance to be equipped for the fashion industry.
FASHION INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE
I worked as full time member of the Christopher Kane team for the first six years of the brand, creating patterns for his most memorable looks, such as the Elastic body-con, Scallops, Chainmail, plastics filled with liquid. And being highly creative and hands on with producing the most elaborate intricately embellished final show pieces by hand. Then the move was made over to freelance work in order to build a greater awareness of the industry, get a feel for how other brands worked, and to build a greater skill-set. And I have been lucky enough to work for top names in the industry. Notable experience being with Furriers Hockley for four years, where completely different techniques were adopted.
