The course, which has been established with the support of Louis Copeland & Sons, kicks off on October 21, so if you're interested in taking part time is of the essence.

Louis Copeland said of the course: “The Louis Copeland & Son name has been synonymous with fine tailored clothing in Ireland for four generations and the company is now eager to develop and support the country’s first National Tailoring Academy, re-kindling interest in this craft.

“Working in partnership with the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) as the awarding body, the academy is on course to become Ireland’s centre of excellence for those pursuing a career in fashion tailoring, to the highest international standards.”
