Sewing

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Sewing is an extremely valuable life skill that everyone wants to have but most people have no clue where to begin. Here at the Haute Couture Academy of Fashion, Fine Arts & Design, we teach sewing from the most basic of beginner levels all the way up to the art of a professional design level, and our students range in age from seven to seventy-seven. There are many different reasons why someone would want to learn how to sew. Some just wish to learn how to make and alter clothing for themselves and their families, while others want to become professional seamstresses and tailors and open their own tailoring/design businesses; and lastly, there are those who wish to pursue fashion design or fashion related careers in a university/college setting, and they require top notch entrance portfolios as well as a strong and prior knowledge of design and sewing in order to gain acceptance and succeed in the fashion industry.

No matter your reasons for wanting to learn how to sew, and no matter what level you wish to pursue it to, you can be assured that the Haute Couture Academy of Fashion, Fine Arts & Design is your very best choice for learning. We offer a larger variety of sewing programmes year round than any other sewing school in Toronto and the GTA and our instructors are all top notch!
