In 2019, Tom was invited to organise a 1-day workshop about Creative Tailoring at the Università Europeo di Design in Italy
He explained to about 100 students how to develop a collection from the initial research and sketching through to sampling and finally presenting on a runway.
The main focus was on menswear tailoring. This was a very welcoming change in the usual fashion design program, which is mostly focusing on womenswear.
The end of the workshop resulted in a standing ovation and it was highly appreciated by the students as well as the teachers.
