What is it?
Picky about the materials you like to wear and the cut of your clothes? Maybe a career in fabric and garment technology is for you. These roles are concerned with the materials used to make our clothing and the way they are produced. A fabric technologist will ensure that they best materials are sourced for each garment, that they’re dyed, embroidered, and printed correctly, and that the material quality is up to scratch.
A garment technologist’s role is to oversee the production of clothing, liaising between the brand and the manufacturer to ensure the final product reflects the original design and is completed to a high standard. Working between the design and production teams, these roles are very important for fashion brands.
