The world class teaching on De Montfort University's (DMU) intimate apparel courses is available to the public for the first time via a range of short courses. DMU's Contour Fashion team, recognised the world over as a leader in the underwear and swimwear industry, offers short courses in a variety of disciplines including bra making and structured lingerie.

The courses are primarily designed and run for businesses in the sector who wish to send their staff for continuing professional development. But they are now also open to members of the public who wish to develop their skills.

Gillian Proctor, who joined DMU this year as Programme Leader and Principal Lecturer for Contour Fashion and Fashion & Contour Design, said the courses are a great opportunity to be trained by the tutors of Britain's longest-established degree specialising in intimate apparel and lingerie.

Gillian said: “As well as teaching the next generation of lingerie designers and advising the fashion industry on trends and technical excellence, we offer businesses and individuals the opportunity to attend short courses which impart ongoing technical skills and encourage and enable creativity.”

Businesses which send staff on the short courses include retailers, fashion brands, designers, bridal and evening wear specialists, fitters and quality assurance specialists.

The courses are (inclusive of VAT):

• Bra fitting: a two day course, running, April 16 and 17 2009, and June 25 and 26 2009, costing £595.
• Bra pattern cutting and grading: a 4.5 day course running January 5 to 9 2009, April 20 to 24 and July 6 to 10, costing £1,195.
• Structured Lingerie and Swimwear Design: a three day course running June 24 to 26 2009, costing £850.
• Bra making: a 4.5 day course running April 6 to 10 2009 and June 29 to July 3, costing £1,295 per student.
• Plus sized bra pattern cutting and grading, a 4.5 day course running July 13 to 17 2009, costing £1,195.
• Quality assurance in the intimate apparel industry: a 4.5 day course running July 20 to 24 2009, costing £1,195.
