The designer in the fashion and luxury workshop manufactures small and medium-sized series of warp and weft, fuzzy or structured, or cut-and-sew knit garments, essentially feminine, for luxury ready-to-wear.

The evolution of demand towards more and more complex and multi-material garments requires the couturier to have significant expertise and agility of mind. The dressmaker in the fashion and luxury workshop prepares and assembles, then assembles series of sub-assemblies from previously cut fabrics, such as silk, satin, embroidery, cashmere, and/or cut-and-sewn knits and/or materials flexible.

The work begins with the organization of the workstation to efficiently produce luxury ready-to-wear quality pieces, it contributes to the different stages of clothing manufacturing by mobilizing the different techniques used in luxury.
