Nino is terrific to work with. He is both professional and personable. He shows great attention to detail and creativity. I would highly recommend him.
Kathy Peterson ~ CEO/Designer at KOI
I would definitely recommend this class to anyone interested in fashion design or draping. I have taken both draping and pattern making courses and I found these to be concise and straight to the point. Each lesson was easy to follow and easy to understand, although I would have liked a little more detail. I am looking forward to taking more classes with Nino!

~Letter from Astrid Seter
I'm having so much fun. I am looking at the world in a totally different way. I never thought fashion design could change the way I look at myself. I thought it was just design and clothes, but it's so much more. It's amazing!
For example; today I read a newspaper and saw something called kurbits (a local swedish painting style) and it dawn on me that I could do something around that. And then Norway has something called Rosemaling (Rose painting). And since I am Norwegian (mom and dad from Norway) and also born and raised in the part in Sweden where kurbits stems from, I realized that both painting styles are a part of my own style. So cool!
Anyways, just wanted to tell you this and that it's life changing to take your courses!
So a huge Thank you, Nino!
