Workingirls Lingerie is a new brick and mortar store in Montreal's St-Henri that is setting a new standard of retail experience. Offering exclusive designer collections as well as bespoke services, it sets itself apart from other lingerie stores. From couples shopping experiences to one-on-one fittings, the dreamy boutique and spacious dressing rooms enables focus on the customers' needs and desires to create lasting memories and relationships. Workingirls has a unique atelier that offers a wide selection of bespoke garments such as corsets, bras, nightgowns, evening wear, embroideries and accessories.
As the head cutter of Workingirls, I will be supervising the apprentice's progress until the program's completion. Having gained my bespoke skills and knowledge apprenticing at Huntsman, Savile Row, I have had first hand experience of the master-apprentice relationship. This traditional way of earning such a high-skilled craft has enabled some of the greatest talents to shine.
This apprenticeship will offer a unique opportunity to learn the trade I acquired and perfected in London, England. My expertise in lingerie stems from my studies at London College of Fashion, specializing in Contour Fashion (the studies on lingerie). My particular expertise puts me in a unique position to teach a trade otherwise not available in Montreal.
Workingirls Lingerie Atelier is looking for a Fashion Lingerie Tailoring Apprentice to learn and contribute to the growth and smooth running of bespoke production operations. The apprentice will learn a variety of skills from mastering basic stitches to completion of a bespoke garment.
The apprenticeship's duration is solely based on the student's progression in mastering the required skills. Satisfactory completion of this apprenticeship is designed to lead to employment at Workingirls Lingerie.
At Workingirls, we believe in nurturing talent.
