Andrea was inspired by her grandmother who was a man’s tailor in Italy. She would sit patiently beside her while she sewed collecting all the scraps of fabric to make outfits for her Barbies. Andrea would constantly draw and her passion and love for art and sewing grew into a dream. Her parents enrolled in the Haute Couture Academy of Fashion, Fine Arts & Design to learn the art of sewing and pattern making so she could pursue Fashion as a career. Andrea graduated from Ryerson University’s Fashion Design program with a Bachelors of Design. From there, Andrea was a co-owner and buyer for a designer maternity boutique called KICK Maternity. After successful years in the business, she decided it was time for a change. She has worked in various roles in the Fashion industry such as Personal Shopping and Bridal Sales Representative. She became unmotivated at work and as a result decided to try something new. She started teaching at Haute Couture Academy studio part time. Soon enough, she took on more classes and found that she thoroughly enjoyed teaching young students. A new passion was born, she was enthralled by teaching. She made a life changing decisions and quit her full time job to go to teacher’s college at Niagara University.
