Since I have become the BvK member (Branchevereniging van Kleermakers & Modevakscholen – BvK – Dutch Association of Tailor and Fashion Design Schools) I can officially take part in their different meetings. Last Friday there was another meeting of the East Region and this time I was able to participate – no business trips.
It is so-called study eventing. Usually one of the members shared his/her knowledge with others. This time Mr. Hans Aartsen – one of the very experienced member in tailoring – was giving some tailoring advises and shared his couture techniques secrets based on models presented by other members.
The master himself was wearing this couture –bespoke/make-to-measure – jacket with this wonderful pockets worked out in the front darts! It it stunning! I have to try to implement this element in one of my jackets.
There were as well 2 models made for contest which will be held on 16th November during the Annual meeting of the BvK and Study Day. I have took pictures but I don’t want to spoil the surprise so I will present it next week – together with a short report from this day.
