Kenneth D. King Design heads a small haute couture house that has a distinct aesthetic identity. King produces one-of-a-kind, made to measure pieces for women and men, as well as limited-edition pieces for boutiques. These include:

  • Made-to-measure evening clothes for both women and men
  • One-of-a-kind evening accessories
  • Limited-edition accessory pieces for boutiques
  • Extravagant furniture and accessories for the home

This class starts with one hour lecture-demo covering equipment and construction techniques.  The other five and one half hours are hands-on, where we learn the stitches by what he calls the “concept” method.  This serves the student better than learning by rote, as certain stitches are grouped by method of construction, i.e. the running stitch.  In this way, the student can repair existing pieces, or study them for inspiration, as they know how the stitch operates.  Materials list will be supplied.
