Excellent, she is fantastic. She works very well with my 8 yo son.
I was very impressed when I came home and saw the bag my son had made under her guidance. She also helped to figure out what was wrong with our sewing machine and got it working right away.

My substantial areas of expertise are women and men patternmaking, draping, garment construction (sewing), tailoring, technical drawing, concepts sketching, from basic to advance skill set. I am also a big fan of incorporating recycled / repurposing materials such as leather, suede into garments.I encourage students to construct their own learning in an environment that stimulates and helps students to realize their full potential.

I had a tight time schedule to finish a summer project before I went in for surgery and Hasaan was very sensitive to that. He was able to teach me new skills in pattern making and cutting that made the process easier/ more accurate as well as sewing techniques. I would say my experience with him was very positive and he was always cheerful and and in a great mood and helped me out a lot with my project. I would definitely recommend using him for lessons.

Hasaan Roselle has taught and directed our summer camp program, Camp Fashion Design for four years now. His passion for fashion is clearly evident as he steps our campers through the basics of sketching and fashion construction. Girls are intrigued and motivated as he shares with them his knowledge of fashion and his many years of experience in the industry. Moreover, his easy going personality and his attention to every detail make him a wonderful choice for a fashion design instructor. We have found him to be patient, caring and considerate with our students as they learn the intricate ins and outs of this sometimes overwhelming industry. Not only is he encouraging, he also allows students to step 'outside of the box' and to explore new ideas instead of always following the conventional path. We like that a lot. This is how the next generation of new, young designers is created! We highly recommend his services and we look forward to him joining us once again next summer at Camp Fashion Design!

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

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

Sylvia L.

New York, NY

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.
