"Fashion at the speed of life"


For over 3 years, the T-project has provided Americans with all their manufacturing needs from pattern making to production as well as offer a showroom to international designers. This October, they are proud to offer a 360 service that will teach the Tuscan production system to American Designers. The system allows for quick production of accessories by using minimal seams and completing a lot of details before sewing construction of the piec similar to the cad mark-up below.

The T-project teaches the Tuscan production system to local designers for just 2500 for 40 hours of lessons and takes them on a two floor journey of Italian workmanship. In the conveniently located garment district, 347 w 36th st, the 11th floor is a selection of final creations in thier showroom which can be a great source of inspiration.

This necklace by 'Brooklyn Brass' in Brooklyn is one of the inspirational pieces in the showroom and also an alumni.

The 10th floor is the teaching space where leather hangs from the walls imprinted with prints, texture, animal skins and glossy finishes. The classes are led by some of the most renown pattern makers including Master Geatano De Franceschi and Master Raphael Lombardo (who has turned out samples in just 24 hours). The course cover a full range of development and production techniques including 3d Computer prototypes, molding and branding.

The course is for all accessories designers (handbags, shoes, jewelry and belts) and is a fraction of the cost of FIT. Judging by the alumni upstairs, it is well worth the investment.

Information

Classes are offered in now thru march 2015, and further information can be seen at the t-projectshowroom.com.
