Seeking Pattern Making (Fashion) info in Switzerland - Employment and Courses?

We are investigating "Pattern Making" opportunities/job prospects in Switzerland - seems to be a dead end but a bit early in the process.

Anybody know the general situation re employment prospects in this field for Switzerland? A little, a lot, does not exist?

Also, can anybody recommend a University/College that offers fashion/pattern making type courses anywhere in Switzerland?

Thank you.

Re: Seeking Pattern Making (Fashion) info in Switzerland - Employment and Courses?

Hey foobar,

I can't comment on employment prospects, but there is a "Swiss Textile College", with locations in St. Gallen, Wattwil and Zürich.

I don't know much about it (only know about it as I've often walked past the one in Zürich, between the swimming areas on the Letten river), but found their website if it's any use:

http://www.textilfachschule.ch

also a pdf brochure for them on a different site here.

and an article in english about them here.

Another website (in English!) that might have some information you're looking for is here: http://www.swisstextiles.ch/index.html?client_locale=en

cheers,
jot

There is the Ecole de Couture in Lausanne:

For work/ inspiration you could work at heidi.com, an opera or the theater.

You are looking to get classes, to give classes or to work as a pattern maker?

Re: Seeking Pattern Making (Fashion) info in Switzerland - Employment and Courses?

Thanks for the replies and suggestions - we will investigate.

The background is my wife has an interest (and talent) in fashion and designing, and decided to do a course in pattern making - assuming she can find such a thing in Switzerland.

Looking forward beyond such a course, we are wondering what are the prospects / demand for this in Switzerland.

Hi Migros Klubschule (http://www.klubschule.ch) also offers some courses. Please type in "M-Art" for search. Their courses are offered in German. I wish there were any in English.

Hi Foobar,
Just saw your thread from 2008/9 wondering if you are still in Zurich. I'm looking for the same thing. Did your wife join the classes from Swiss Textile College?

I'm looking for a patternmaker to create patterns for a couple pieces of clothing. or taking the course myself. Any feedback?

Have a great day and i hope you're still in Zurich!
Adrienne
