Welcome to HST Tailoring Academy

Our courses are organised in 2 major categories:
(I) The Bespoke Tailor's Course
(II) Short Courses

 
(I)
Objectives of the Bespoke Tailor's Course 
The Bespoke Tailor's course is a professional foundation course that prepares individuals who intend to upgrade their knowledge and skills needed for careers in tailoring houses. This course is also suitable for those who are keen to start their own businesses in tailoring. It also benefits those who are already in the tailoring business and would like to upgrade their technical skills.    

The course consists of 6 modules, namely drafting and constructing of men's a) shirt, b) trousers and c) jacket. Upon completion of each modular program, students will be awarded certification from HST Tailoring Academy. Students who complete all the 6 modules will have the necessary skill sets to gain employment in the tailoring industry. Apprenticeships can be arranged among the tailoring houses in Singapore.

The Bespoke Tailor's course is prepared by our highly trained master tailors and focuses on the traditional English method of tailoring. As the skill of traditional tailoring is slowly lost through modern day industrialisation and mass production, it is imperative we preserve and pass down these skills to future generations of tailors.

Enrolment
Those who would like to enrol in this course will have to register their interest online by paying a deposit of $100. We are looking at a maximum of 6 students per class. Students will be informed at a later stage once the class is confirmed about commencement dates and details.

 
(II)
Objectives of Short Courses
The short courses are for individuals who would like to know more about the intricacy of hand sewn bespoke tailoring. They serve as an introduction to the world of bespoke tailoring. Two skills are carefully chosen, namely handsewn button holes and handsewn pocket squares. Each short course comprises of one 120-minute sessions.

Enrolment 
Individuals can enrol online by choosing the appropriate courses that interest them.
