Werkstatt is a pattern development studio located in New York’s Garment District. Founded in 2008 by Tina Schenk, the company specializes in creative, intelligent and well-constructed garment development for many high-end fashion houses.

The name ‘Werkstatt’ is a link to Tina’s German roots and literally means ‘work place’. It is here that relationships with designers are formed and, through Werkstatt’s focus on understanding each designer’s needs, creative collaboration can thrive.

The 2013 FMI Grant helped support: updated technology, new Alvanon dress forms, and capital improvements.
