Hi, I am studying Fashion Pattern Cutting at LCF (London College of Fashion) and I have to start thinking about different companies i'd like to work for during my placement year which will start next year (2017).
I am currently working for an upcoming swimwear company which is paid. I am a seamstress and assistant pattern cutter.
I would prefer to work in a swimwear company as I believe that is my specialism but my course doesn't cover swimwear and I chose this course as I want to learn about general pattern cutting for lots of different garments. So.. what do you guys suggest? Looking for specific swimwear brands or high-end fashion houses/ brands/ companies?
I live in London and hope to do my placement year in London too so if you know any swimwear companies in or around London please drop a comment below as well.

Have a general look around at everything available and then narrow down your options based on what is interesting and what is practical. Don't limit yourself. I'm sure there's plenty of stuff in and around London.
