Meesteropleiding Coupeur / Master Tailor Institute
The Master Tailor Institute is a foundation dedicated to re-establishing quality tailoring to the Netherlands. The foundation achieves this with a three-year, full-time education program that trains students to become master tailors who can exercise their profession to the highest standards for theater groups, designers or independently. The foundation also offers daytime and evening courses for established tailors to improve their existing skills. The foundation is not-for-profit. Well-known names from the fashion and theater worlds have been closely involved with the program from the get go, including De Nederlandse Opera, Het Nationale Ballet, Toneelgroep Amsterdam, Stage Entertainment, Het Internationaal Danstheater and the fashion designers Mart Visser, Frans Molenaar, Jan Taminiau, Monique Collignon and Iris van Herpen.
Mariette Hoitink is on the advisory board of The Master Tailor Institute.
