Sewing Summit

 

CALLING ALL EXPERIENCED SEWERS AND PATTERN-MAKERS!

Sponsored by Saint Louis Fashion Fund, St. Louis Mosaic Project, and the International Institute

Come to this informational interview and skill evaluation with the designers-in-residence at the Saint Louis Fashion Incubator located downtown at 1533 Washington Avenue, 63103.

Our designers are looking to hire experienced seamstresses and patternmakers that can work out of the Berges Fashion Technology Center, a full-fledged cut-and-sew facility located at the Incubator. Rather than use factories on the coasts, our designers want the convenience and collaboration of making their garments on site! Hours and compensation are subject to negotiation with individual designers.

Questions or to RSVP please contact us at info@saintlouisfashionfund.org or 314.400.9300

Light Up The Zipper Premie

More than 200 guests gathered at the Missouri History Museum to honor the influential people who made Saint Louis' Garment District the center for fashion and design. We premiered the "Light Up The Zipper" video, a NoCoast Original, which highlighted Saint Louis' Garment District and the people who helped make it the thriving district it once was- second only to New York. Our Fashion Incubator designers and staff, along with the film crew, escorted the stars of the film down a red carpet, while Susan Sherman discussed their legacies. Event chair, Fran Zamler (wearing a fabulous vintage dress) toasted the crowd and all of their accomplishments.
