I've been sewing and designing clothing for men, women, and kids professionally for over 30yrs. My curriculum is specific to beginners, intermediate, and advanced students. And as an educator of college and high school level students, each class is designed to inspire creatively as it allows each student the opportunity to further advance their skills.

About Stormy B.

Stormy Weather Banks has been a fashion designer for more than 30 years, honing her craft to become the professional business woman / educator within the industry she loves today. And with noteworthy successes as wedding dress designer of men & women evening apparel, a soft doll maker, etc., her most profound joy comes from working with today’s youth.
Stormy’s journey began at the very early age of 7. As her mother taught her to sew, she followed that passion attending Brooks College Long Beach, CA. earning an Associates of Arts in Fashion/Apparel Design, and a Bachelor of Arts in Teacher Education & Professional Development at California State University- Dominguez Hills.
Stormy has been a twice featured bridal designer in Black Bridal Magazine and a featured doll maker in Anaheim’s Soft Doll Artist Magazine for her Mud Pie Babies dolls. She has been featured in L.A. Sentinel for Santee High School Fashion Club fashion showcase, in both ENCLAVE World Culture in LA and The William Grant Still Arts Center as she displayed her Mud Pie Babies dolls and facilitated a Dollmaking Workshop to “Empowering Women of Color” to break the silence on HIV/AIDS in the black community. She took 1st place at Brooks College Fashion Show and was awarded by the City of Bellflower for her work with the youth in the community.
