About Mona

I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. While there, I was inspired by soft sculpture and wearable art and in my senior year, I found a new love in fashion design. I moved to New York City to graduate with an Associate in Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology. I have worked in a variety of fashion industry jobs including assistant pattern maker, screen print artist, technical designer, and activewear designer. I have costume designed for several theatre companies and dance companies.

Over the years, I have worked with many high school and college students. I love to teach them the ins-and-outs of clothing design and also a bit about what to expect in their lives if they choose to go into the field. I have stayed in touch with most of my students and have seen them blossom.

I have been sewing since I was about 12 years old and I am a fashion designer who creates designs from start to finish, including pattern making. I have taught students how to sew and have a unique way of teaching--I don't necessarily start with an easy project. I believe the fastest way to learn is to make a design. The only way to learn quickly is to make mistakes and learn along the way.

I enjoy teaching and am patient but have high expectations for my students. I haven't been disappointed in any of them as I work with each as an individual and listen carefully to the student's needs and expectations.
