I am a fashion designer and fashion instructor of 20 years of teaching fashion design courses to students from elementary to (12 years) college level. All together, I have a 35+ year fashion industry experience in CAD, sewing and pattern making. I also guide students on topics such as portfolio preparation, designing, sewing and trends in fashion. Having prior industry experience and a professional portfolio enables to be well equipped to share my expertise in fashion with anyone who is interested. I hold an AS and MFA degree in fashion design, a BS in Prof. Mgmt. and a MS in Technology and TESOL that enabled me to be well equipped in order to be a better educator. I have worked under various titles both in NYC and South Florida in the fashion industry before I branched out on my own as a fashion designer/entrepreneur creating and selling my own clothing collection. My goal is to share my knowledge and skills with every fashionista out there. If your dream is to become a fashion designer, don't be afraid to get on board of my ship. I promise, your ride will be enjoyable and fulfilling.

I am new to pattern making and sewing and Guerda has been SO helpful and patient with me! I am not afraid to ask her questions and she really takes her time with me. Even though she is an advanced seamstress with her own fashion brand, you can tell she really enjoys sewing, even the basics, and her passion really translates onto her teaching. I have now been with her for 10 classes and my pattern drafting skills have grown immensely!
She’s very amazing and very thorough. Very friendly and very patient. Explain everything perfectly for beginners . Would highly recommend . I learn so much.
Oh My God I’m so glad I chose you for my sewing lesson, you are very thoughtful, your lesson were very useful and I really love how patient and great you are. I would highly suggest you to anyone interested in learning.
