Arts and Cultural Profit generated by restoring the “art” of sewing and design in Calgary.
As per: http://www.ecoleholtcouture.com/
To respond to designers having difficulty in finding the expertise to create couture fashion with trained knowledgeable sewing professionals, particularly in the areas of pattern making, sample making and hand finishing, and to nurture exceptional talent in couture.
École Holt Couture believes that the mentor apprentice relationship, which is so crucial to the transference of very specialized skills, has been lost to current fashion design education.
The school therefore integrates theory with practical application, teaches techniques of design and pattern making; couture skills of precise tailoring and dressmaking and the embellishment of apparel and accessories as a specialization distinct from fashion design, marketing and merchandising.

Calgary Arts Development and The Calgary Foundation formally announced the purchase of the King Edward School site from the Calgary Board of Education.
King Edward School is a distinctive heritage building located on a three-acre site in South Calgary at 1720 – 30 Avenue SW. Built as one of nineteen sandstone schools between 1894 and 1914, the School is centrally located in the community of South Calgary.
The King Edward School site is the first of a future portfolio of spaces for cSPACE Projects. After five years of research, advocacy and planning, cSPACE Projects has been founded as a non-profit real estate enterprise dedicated to developing a network of multi-disciplinary creative workspaces across the city.
