Palermo Fashion Institute turns its students into artists


The Dressmaking course allows, with a simple and intuitive approach, to learn how to cut and pack a garment correctly. The bases are made-to-measure, they are not pre-built because each person has his build and his posture. Each tailor is carefully followed by qualified teachers, respecting their individuality. At the end of the course, the tailor will be able to make any garment, from the skirt to the outerwear, from the swimsuit to the intimate garment, as well as from the simple to the wedding dress.
