Making patterns is the foundation to make clothes. Patterns in this term are to cut plain fabric into 3 dimensional forms according to sketches and designs of the designer. And this job is done by patterners, modelists or technical designers. Gwangyong Lee, Director of Airoso Fashion Academy, has led a single path as a technical designer for the last 40 years and is received as a pioneer and a master of patterns in South Korea. 

Skills, experience and knowledge
Having secured skills and experience in patterning men, women, children, dress and wedding dress, Lee deepened his knowledge by completing a number of academic courses: degree in literature, art, digital media design and a master’s degree in clothing at Cyber University of Korea Lifelong Learning Center. He registered 31 trademarks for Airoso money belt clothes and 21 for raw hide and skin in 2006, 4 designs and trademarks in 2018, applied a patent for sawing line hiding technique in 2019. To spread his skills, experience and knowledge in the field to young technical designers, he established Airoso Fashion Academy equipped with all necessary facilities. 

Globally recognizing Airoso Fashion Academy 
Lee recently upgraded ambience and curriculum of the academy to give better learning environment to students coming from both home and overseas who are eager to learn about patterns during their holiday: the basic class turned into groups (4 persons) instead of individuals and the contents are open to homepage and blog; the tuition fee of 2.5 million won (2,088 US dollars) for 3 months was reduced to 900,000 won; on support of local governments and the Small and Medium Business Administration, Airoso Fashion Academy makes patterns and samples for those who wish to make their own brand designs. If you think you are the right person for this relatively less known profession in South Korea yet, you might want to pay a visit to Airoso Fashion Academy to check the possibility.
