I have been sewing for over 30 years and teaching for over 12 years. I am a Fashion Design graduate (FIDM).

I can help you understand what is Fashion Design, from concept to production. The lessons will cover how the fashion industry works, how to understand the market, your target customer, and the price point you want to design for.

We will look at the design process, from gathering inspirations, sketching, and editing the line, to the choice of fabrics, trims, and notions.

We will also cover how to find a manufacturer for your line, using contractors, and finding a sales representative, or a showroom to sell your line.

The lessons can also include:

-Sewing (hand sewing and machine sewing, overlock)
-Pattern making/altering
-Draping
-Fashion Illustration (drawing the figure)
-Illustration on the computer with Illustrator and Photoshop
-Building a Portfolio
-Illustrator for screen printing

The lessons are customized to your needs. I will only cover the ...

Marie did a great job of working with my 12 year old daughter. She was quickly able to adjust to the skill level necessary to help my daughter continue to grow her sewing skills!

Experienced fashion designer of 6 years available to teach eager students of all experience, levels and ages! I adjust and build my lesson structure so students learn what they are interested in and want to learn, while building strong foundations of basic sketching concepts to sourcing materials, technical specs, and realization. I specialize in women's clothes but can easily teach you men's wear, children's wear and accessory design.

I have been designing my own clothes for almost as long as I can remember. My personal preference is classic/retro/avant garde. I can help you find your own voice as a designer.

If you need to work on one area such as use of color, fashion drawing (not as hard as it sounds), pattern making etc. Or if you are just beginning. I start where you need me to.

Anne is a great sewing instructor. I was able to understand how to use a sewing machine and am more comfortable using one. The pillow case project I worked on was a fun project to do. The easiest way to learn how to sew is by doing it and practicing. It's definitely easier learning how to sew with the teacher next to you and answering your questions. I highly recommend Anne as a sewing instructor.

I'm an artist designer that blurs the line between fashion and visual arts. I have a Master of Design in Fashion from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I use fashion as a medium to express my individuality. I guide my students through the process of developing a fashion line starting from understanding what fashion design is from concept to production. But most important of all helping you to find your voice and how to best translating into fashion. Fashion can be the trigger to express diversity and freedom.

If you are looking to put together your portafolio to apply to some fashion course or degree, or just keep it handy for future presentations, please let me guide you. It's a process that can be very overwhelming, I know! I have been there; but I succeeded and I will help you succeed too.

Yali is a WONDERFUL Spanish teacher. She teaches my 13-year-old daughter in such an engaging way that my daughter insists on *not* taking Spanish at school but instead learning solely with Yali (and also when she's experiencing full immersion in a Spanish-speaking country). The fact that Yali is from Cuba and a magical fashionista is a super fun added bonus.
