Team Tammam Spring 2017
Well it’s been a while since my last Web Log. It has been an exhilarating time at the Atelier and the One Dress project has been all consuming, with a fabulous trip to India, two successful Crowdfunder campaigns and work in progress showcases here and abroad, since my last post.
I’m very excited to introduce the wonderful Nyleeta, who will be taking over the Web Log while she is on placement with us over the summer months.
Yours in Sustainability
The latest batch of Tammam interns met for the first time at an iconic London retail location to get to know each other and gain some insight into the world of high end fashion before the hard work of the next few weeks begins.
Every season the atelier offers placements to both technical studio and administrative students, to offer them invaluable work experience within the fashion industry.
Meet the team.
Appa, the ambitious Norwegian studying pattern design in Denmark.
She has great attention for detail and loves an organised work space, she is used to using advanced technology to design and create patterns but here at atelier Tammam she is gaining knowledge of how to create traditional manual patterns for haute couture.
Here she is analysing the structure of a ball gown.
I am Nyleeta, described by my colleagues as “the diligent Brit” studying Fashion Management and marketing in London. I have been tasked over the next few months to write this blog for Tammam, as well as work on some of our upcoming events.
On our expedition, I fell in love with this beautiful gown and wanted to purchase it but the price tag said no.
Katherine, the adventurous country girl from Oregon, soon to be studying at the Fashion institute of technology in New York, is a meticulous seamstress eager to learn the tricks of the trade from Ms Tammam.
Tina, the unassuming Italian/ Lebanese fashionista, is studying fashion management and marketing in London.
She has an abstract way of viewing the world and aims to bring innovative ways to market the boutique during her placement.
We gave ourselves the nickname, The Tammam Secret Agents because we spent the whole day looking at other designers gowns inside and out, as well as how they display them, and got many ideas to implement during our placements.
We all seemed to agree that the quality of the designer clothing we saw was not fair value for money and in comparison to the quality of the handmade gowns offered by atelier Tammam, there was no match.
I’m really excited for what the next few weeks have in store and I look forward to writing the next post.
