Made for you.

 

We are a premier fashion and accessories class series that focuses on bringing back the art of fine couture sewing techniques to Philadelphia

 
 

CLASSES

Our classes are designed to appeal to all skill levels, while bringing students to a level of excellence within their craft. Our growing team of fashion and sewing professionals are what make us so unique. Whether you are just learning how to sew, or ready to launch a clothing line of your own, we have a class that will suit your goals.

EVENTS

We bring together the creative community through a series of events showcasing our various projects, including fashion shows, instructional workshops and business seminars. We belong to an amazing network of designers, Philadelphia business owners, and schools that we love to share with our students.

Product Development

Make their dreams come to life

 

We know how intimidating applying for Fashion School can be. We create a fun and creative environment where students will create a beautiful fashion portfolio and meet the sewing requirements that will put them way ahead of the competition.

With this 2 week immersive summer program, students will learn about the fashion industry through mood boards, fashion sketching/illustration, fabric shopping, pattern reading, and garment sewing.
