Surrounded by creative people since the beginning of my life, it was impossible not to develop my own creative streak. I got introduced to my first sewing machine back in school at the age of 12 and immediately set to sewing a skirt and that is where it all started. It was inevitable that I would end up studying fashion design and I finished up at the renowned Rhode Island School of design in the US of A. There, I was able to explore textiles, drafting, draping, pattern making, fashion illustration, garment construction, cut ‘n’ sew and knitwear, finally graduating with my own collections.
After several years working in the fashion industry in Boston, Geneva and Lausanne, I moved on to opening my own business; Naver Couture. Initially operating out of Founex (VD), Naver Couture has been in operation since 2002, and is currently located in Aubonne, a beautiful corner of Switzerland, close to Lake Geneva. Naver Couture has grown from offering tailoring & alteration services and soft furnishing decorations, to helping people develop their own skills, by providing group or private lessons on sewing, tailoring, pattern making and all the necessary skills related to apparel and furnishings.
