Fashion Industry Lingo
"What does that mean?" Be in the Know!
A quick run down of the lingo you will hear in the fashion design industry.
Hello, I am Shawnelle.
I have been a costume designer based out of Los Angeles for the past 20 years, designing feature films, specializing in comedies!
Before costume designing I was a fashion designer creating gowns for the Hollywood crowd in my Pacific Palisades, CA studio. My whole career has been around fashion and sewing.
About 10 years ago I moved to the east coast to be closer to the migrating film productions. I landed in a beautiful lake town - Mooresville, NC. A few months in, I started a school called Future Fashion Designers. A school designed for kids, to teach sewing and all about fashion design. My plan was to do this for a year or two but it ended up being so much fun working with kids that we are still here and growing everyday.
I then found that just as many teens and adults wanted to learn to sew and study fashion :) Teaching all different age groups has been so eye opening and rewarding. It has been over 10 years now and I must have taught 1000's of people to sew! Teaching has been a great way to improve my skills as well :)
I also have a YouTube channel where I do some up-cycling projects. It's called "Sew Shawnelle." under the Future Fashion Designers channel. And check out the "SewBit's section for quick lessons in sewing techniques.
I hope you enjoy my mix of classes and would love to hear from you!
Stay tuned for more classes that are in the works!
