The Couture & Craftsmanship Concept
This spring we will start with two new courses in the studio. We do this based on the renewed Couture & Craftsmanship Concept. In these programs with a focus on one of the three pillars of the Dutch Couture Academy, in addition to attention to craftsmanship, there is room for developing a personal signature and a vision of how you can earn money with your talent.
The three pillars are:
- Broderie d’Art- haute couture embroidery techniques from Parisian haute couture
- Creative Pattern Design – draping and Japanese pattern techniques
- Sewing Secrets sewing techniques with specific applications, such as the CHANEL inspired jacket
Broderie d’Art: Module 1 Classics Revealed
On March 15 we will start with a group around haute couture embroidery techniques. Some start from the very beginning, others have already been introduced to the technique of tambour beading through a short course.
From studying what haute couture entails and how it is applied, we start working with the classic techniques and materials. A perfect basis to build on in future modules.
All information about this program, the investment and the data can be found on this page .

A course where sewing by hand is central! Are you just learning how to sew a Chanel-inspired jacket? No. All kinds of techniques are discussed that have a versatile application. In addition, the process of creating as is customary in haute couture is discussed: from customizing by means of moulage, to refining and elaborating every detail step by step. A creative process full of traditional techniques. An enrichment for every advanced fashion maker.
The course on the Chanel-inspired jacket has been expanded, in order to get an even better idea of the possibilities for applying the different skills with which you are introduced. All information about this course can be found on this page .
