I am a fashion designer/instructor and entrepreneur of 30 years, I do my best to combine my passion for clothing and accessories with a classroom environment, where I guide students in topics such as sewing, patterns, and trends in fashion. Having prior industry experience and a professional portfolio, I am well equipped to share my expertise of fashion with anyone who is interested in learning the ropes. I hold 2 degrees in fashion design, and I also worked under various titles both in NYC and south Florida in the fashion industry before I branched out on my own with my own label Lordana. I also have a 30 year + fashion industry experience in sewing, designing, technical drawing, CAD, and pattern making. 12 years from my 30+ experience were spent at The Art Institute of Fort lauderdale where I taught fashion and merchandising courses to college level students. I have also been teaching sewing and pattern making classes to students from elementary to college levels. If fashion is you dream, don't be afraid to get on board of my ship. I promise, your ride will be enjoyable and fulfilling.

During my time as a student at the Art Institute, I remember students clamoring to register for Ms. Pierre's courses in advanced pattern making, children wear and swimwear.  Her role as the professor and director of the annual fashion show class and event was amazing. During those events Mr Pierre took me under her wing and imparted priceless knowledge and wisdom that has helped me in my career years after graduating. She is beyond talentd, graceful, stylish and an exceptionally gifted lecturer. Ms Pierre keeps her students enthralled with her compelling knowledge of pattern making and design. I know absolutely no other professor who is as passionate about fashion design. Also who desires to help students understand how the proper pattern making process can bring a garment to life. All of her classes were always packed to capacity because she had an amazing abality to see her students potential and bring that greatness to the surface. So with that said it is my honor and privilege to recommend Guerda Pierre as an instructor.
