On Saturday, I had the pleasure of meeting Rachel Ford, owner of Made—a fashion school in Philadelphia that offers classes and workshops on the fine art of tailoring and couture sewing techniques. Rachel is an entrepreneur committed to cultivating a supportive fashion community in Philadelphia, and she is determined to bring back the lost art of creating well made and beautifully hand-crafted clothing to the United States. Spend just a few minutes with her and you'll be inspired to dive into the fashion world yourself—or at least learn to sew :)
The Made studio, located in Old City, is an amazing space with tall ceilings, hardwood floors, exposed wood beams, and incredible light thanks to a gorgeous wall of windows at the front of the building. Of course it is beautifully styled with dress forms, industrial shelving, and clusters of feathers. See for yourself!
Be sure to check out Made's website and visit the studio for lots of creative inspiration and design goodness.
