New England Fashion+Design Association's White Plains location opened in March and offers classes for adults and children ages 7 and older. The fashion design school teaches classes on pattern making, fashion illustration, live model drawing, and clothing construction.

New classes include knitting, in which students learn the basics of purl, stitch movement, and finishing, as well as Computers in Fashion, which teaches students to use Photoshop to design textile layouts and placement prints for fashion designs, as well as create their own fashion portfolio.

No prior experience is needed, you just need to have love for it, says owner Irina Simeonova.

New England Fashion+Design Association also offers a Pre-College Portfolio Workshop for students looking to apply to a fashion college. “We teach them and show them real skill and when they leave they are really prepared to pursue fashion design at the college level," Simeonova says.

Students at New England Fashion+Design Association can make any item of clothing they choose. “We don’t do simple, easy projects, but we do teach the basics of pattern making even to the youngest children.... So students are learning the real craft of making clothes,” Simeonova says.

New England Fashion+Design Association also has a location in Norwalk, CT. In addition to classes, both locations offer camps, workshops, and after-school sessions. All class materials are provided.
