About Helena

I specialize in fashion design and sewing. I have an A.A. in fashion design from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in San Francisco, and a B.A. in fashion design from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. I have worked with many designers and I am familiar in most fabrics and types of garments.

I am a skilled pattern-maker for both garments and accessories and have experience using a large variety of sewing tools. I have also worked in leather accessory design and handbag design. I am very familiar with women's and menswear, but am able to tutor in other types of clothing such as children's or baby as well.

I have six years experience as a seamstress and a fashion designer, and have worked in womenswear, menswear, leather design, handbags and accessories. I currently have my own line of clothing and have worked in all types of fabrics. I am a skilled pattern maker as well.

Please contact me for lessons or questions. I am generally available every day from 9am-9pm. I can travel to students or meet them online. I can also offer lesson packages at a discounted rate.
