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:

-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 ...

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 met Tuesday at the fabric store. I gave her a photo and we picked out fabric. After my dress and vest was made... We were "the couple" of the night. I changed my design 3 times and she was patient and caring and I stopped the whole show because of her. My dress was much prettier than the original photo I had given her.
