The Designers’ Studio


The Designers’ Studio:

The Designers’ Studio, initiated in 2015, has evolved into a professional development vehicle vastly different from traditional sample rooms and apparel training programs in that it includes practical advice from creative entrepreneurs to experts in the fashion industry, seasoned designers, pattern makers and sewists (a seamstress who is passionate about sewing).

SoHarlem’s Designers’ Studio offers memberships to designers. The membership program is supported by experienced designers who are in residence at SoHarlem or teach in SoHarlem’s Community Training Institute. The Designers-in-Residence provide reasonably priced consultation to aspiring designers and access to local manufacturing for small production runs where designers can leverage apprentices, tailors, pattern makers, and seamstresses. 

The Designers’ Studio offers emerging, local, regional and global designers: studio time to develop a design, obtain advice on design, fabrics and patterns and access to cutting tables and space for meetings to showcase their collection to potential and currents buyers.

Consultations are available Tuesdays between 12PM to 4PM.  To schedule your first free consultation please click here to send us an email which must include the following information:
