Instructor Biography

Caroline Hart, Pattern Cutter & Maker - Luxury Fashion Design

I'm a Creative Pattern Cutter and specialise in draping and modelling on the stand. I have worked at the heart of London and Paris fashion for over ten years and have focused my career in the luxury and ready-to-wear sector, creating iconic garments for the stores and catwalk along side bespoke/couture and made to measure garments. I have worked for a large number of design houses, fashion magazines and stylists including designing and pattern cutting for high profile clients and celebrities including Victoria Beckham, Sienna Miller, Lady Gaga, Beyonce and The Duchess of Cambridge.

I have worked in a wide variety of roles as my career has progressed. This includes my own private client base of designing, pattern cutting and developing everything from bridal, occasion wear and red carpet. I have a broad spectrum of skills including designing, draping, modalist and pattern cutting and also an in depth knowledge of Gerber Accumark pattern cutting, production and sampling. This has enabled me to achieve the best productivity and maximum impact, whilst raising standards within studio technical teams.

I have also been commissioned by global luxury brands as a Technical Consultant predominantly in the Middle East. This role has involved advising and guiding a brand fully through the process from sampling through to production, ensuring a high luxury finish. This has included producing garments ready for the runway as well as private client made to measure garments. Please contact me if you would like to hear more about my Technical Consulting services.
