Amala Chettiar

A professional pattern drafter, and sample maker with 22 years of experience in the export and retail industry. I have worked with export sector -- Creative Garments and Texport Syndicate, Retail – Pyramid Mega store , Raymond – Be and Splash, NGO – Khamir and Somaiya Kalavidya and many other designers who cased at the fashion weeks. My strength when it comes to teaching students comes from my experience as it helps me to teach with a lot of conviction, and I have been teaching for the past 8 years.

Having been privately tutored by Sheroo Cooper an accomplished seamstress from Colaba – South Bombay who trained at the famed Chamber of Couture - Paris and Tailors and Cutters Academy London, I have imbibed her western approach to cutting which is scientific, Be spoke and impeccable tailoring. I also enjoy draping having been taught the finer nuances of draping by maestro of draping James Ferreira with whom I have conducted a design by drape program which helps you understand proportions and achieve silhouettes with an Indian Soul.
