Brita Hirsch

Brita Hirsch is a master tailor with 30 years of experience and director of the Tailoring Academy.

The Academy was founded in response to the lack of practical tailoring training in the UK, particularly outside of London. Based in the North West of England, it aims to end this shortage by becoming the first UK training centre to deliver the new ABC Awards Level 5 Diploma in Bespoke Tailoring, as a stand-alone qualification.

Designed in collaboration with the Savile Row Bespoke Association, the programme delivers practical skills training and opens up an alternative route to the traditional tailoring apprenticeship.

We also deliver short courses in pattern construction, sewing, dressmaking and fashion illustration. 

The Tailoring Academy is based in Macclesfield, the old centre of the UK silk industry, with excellent train links to Manchester (25min), London Euston (1h 40min) and further afield.
