Fashion Designer - We Guarantee to make you look at least 10 pounds thinner just by changing your clothes

I have been Fashion Designing since I was able to sit up right and hold fabric or a pencil in my hands. For more than 30 years I have been designing one-of-a-kind original garments and collections for women, men and children. I have not only designed but also produced these garments using high end manufacturing and couture methods.
I have developed and sold collections as well as individual pieces for clients and retailers while providing each with their specific needs, style and fitting requirements.
My expert team and I look forward to creating exclusive pieces for you in everything from – Undergarments and Swimwear, Bridal Wear, Evening Wear, and Special occasions, Proms and all Business and Outer Wear including Leather.

Educator

Education is the answer to many of the world’s challenges. Oprah and I both agree when it comes to this point. So much so that when I was asked to teach Fashion subjects in post secondary institutions around the GTA I fell in love. I discovered this new passion about 17 years ago and returned to university to obtain a degree in Adult Education. I have researched, developed and delivered more than 20 subjects in this field and have also coordinated the part –time program at Seneca College for 7 years.
Teaching, sharing and building skills, knowledge and progressive, success attitudes in all areas of Fashion, Style, Image and Home décor gives me great joy and enrichment. I love sharing with you in any way I can, so please look for my books coming out next year they will be an excellent resource and reference for you – Enjoy!
Those of you who are interested in taking their Sewing, Pattern making or understanding of Style and Image to a new level can contact me. Group and Individual instruction available in all Fashion related areas.

Introduction to Recycling Fashion

I truly love these courses as much as I love nature. With mass production, consumption and landfills overflowing with waste, these subjects give us the opportunity to recycle garments. We begin with "T"-Shirts and who of us has not gone through dozens of them in our lifetime? Together, we will utilize "T"-Shirts, deconstruct, upscale and redesign them. You won't believe what exciting and modern garments we can create that you and the environment love.

Cost of $290. Two hours per week for twelve weeks.
