The academy teaches sewing, fashion sketching, CAD design, and fashion design skills for students who are interested in learning more about fashion!

We provide a supportive, creative and educational environment where young future designers can learn skills that will make their designs come to life!


We offer classes, camps, workshops for students from 1st grades and up. For teens, we also offer curriculum based courses as well as Fashion Portfolio preparation Classes for college admission.



Highly recommended!

My 9-year old daughter loves the program and the opportunity to create new items with Marcela and the other wonderful teachers each week! She always looks forward to going and is developing a real passion for design. We signed her up for the summer camp as well

and can't wait!


My daughter had her 6th birthday party there and it was perfect! Marcela made everything so easy and was super accommodating. The girls had the best time! I would definitely recommend for a birthday party or classes.


The variety of classes and opportunities to be creative are just some of the benefits of The Fashionable Stylista. The owner is knowledgeable about the industry and passionate about her vision for the business. There are classes for all ages and ability levels. The store is gorgeous and well equipped.


​All of our instructors are industry professionals who currently, or have previously worked, within the fashion industry in fashion design. Through a collaboration of their experience and passion, we develop classes and workshops that are not only fun and creative, but provide skills and education for future designers.
