Twelve instructors and teachers in the field of fashion and sewing from the Kulob Institute of Technology and Innovation Management (KITIM) have completed an intensive two-week tailoring course on patternmaking of men’s shirts and trousers.

This tailoring-centric Training-for-Trainers (ToT) programme is made possible thanks to the Government of Switzerland through the International Trade Centre (ITC)’s Global Textiles and Clothing Programme in close cooperation with the Kulob Institute of Technology and Innovation Management. This was the first course hosted by the Kulob Garment Training Centre, the newest ITC initiative, launched and furnished under GTEX.

The training course covered practical knowledge in pattern drafting and garment construction. Through hands-on experiences, the participants furthered their knowledge in drafting men’s shirts and pants on different dimensional characteristics and learned more about the sewing techniques involved in their construction.

Mr. Manuchehr Sharifov, the trainer, says: “The knowledge gained in this training will help participants to modernize the process of clothing patternmaking that can be applied to mass and individual production”.

Participants in the class were equipped with necessary skills in taking body measurements and fitting adjustments for dresses.

Mr. Saidmumin Kamolov, ITC National Programme Manager, says: “This course provided a unique opportunity for participants to develop their practical skills and creative methods for designing and sewing clothes, thereby allowing for the further transfer of the knowledge and skills they gain to their students, colleagues, and employees through the KITIM’s Garment Training Centre, which has just been enhanced by the ITC”.

The Kulob Garment Training Centre is the fourth Garment Training Centre in Tajikistan established by the International Trade Centre jointly with local universities. These centres in Dushanbe, Khujand, Danghara, and now Kulob meant to serve as knowledge hubs and bridge the industry with educational institutions, supplying the industry with qualified skilled workforce in most efficient and effective way possible.
