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.
