The Designers’ Sanctuary provides aspiring fashion designers with expert guidance, community support, and exclusive resources to fast-track their journey to a profitable and fulfilling business with passive income streams.

Still wondering if you can make a real income with fashion design? But not sure how to do that?

Let us show you how.

You’re ready to make consistent income with your designs, but don’t know where to begin. 

Say goodbye to the time-consuming struggle of figuring it all out solo.



If any of these statements have you going, “What the heck is going on, get out of my head!?” then keep reading – you’re in the right place, lovely 🙂

Zero Prior Experience Required

This is tailor-made for you:

Even if you’ve never taken a fashion design course or went to fashion design school.

Even if you lack experience in patternmaking and you’re bad at drawing.

Even if have no consistent income streams yet from your designs.

Even if you don’t have loads of time to take off to implement this.

Even if you don’t have a fashion design business yet (or you have one but it’s not growing the way you want).


Now imagine the possibility of generating a month’s salary in just 48 hours through a single sale!

What if you could build a business that not only sustains you and your family but also grants you the flexibility to craft a career on your terms? 

Imagine the freedom of working from home or anywhere your adventures take you.

Consider the prospect of creating a design once and reaping the rewards for years to come. Your designs becoming timeless, circulating in the online market, bringing continuous income.

Think about the pride your family and friends will feel, boasting about your patternmaking prowess to everyone they know.

The Designers’ Sanctuary program opens up a world where these aspirations become your reality.

… Where you can create your dream lifestyle and business.

But you've heard the stories about Fashion Design being hard and you're hesitant. You're asking yourself questions like...

  • What if my designs don’t fit and I don’t know how to fix them?
  • What if I’m horrible at drawing and can only make stick figures?
  • What happens if no one likes my designs?
  • How will I ever be able to draft patterns on my computer?
  • What if I’m horrible at designing and everything turns out wrong?
  • What if I’ve never designed before and don’t have time to go back to college to learn how?
  • How will I know that my designs are done and don’t need anymore fixing?
  • How do I market my fashion business?
  • How can I attract my dream clients and grow?
  • Can you really earn a full-time income with fashion design (working from home)?
  • What if I don’t have a trust fund to bankroll my fashion business?

I understand the potential questions and uncertainties that arise when venturing into fashion design, especially if it’s your first time. 

Without a clear plan, the risk of making critical mistakes, feeling discouraged, and never completing your first pattern looms large. Progress can seem elusive without the right guidance and support.

That’s precisely why I’ve developed the Designer’s Sanctuary, a step-by-step program tailored to guide you through the intricacies of growing a fashion design business from home, providing the support and structure needed to avoid common pitfalls and ensure your progress in the world of fashion design.

This will work for you.

You know what brought you here. 

You know the desire in your heart that led you to learn how to build and grow your fashion business 

Whether it’s being able to make custom patterns for that family member (or yourself) that is hard to fit, or making a flexible career out of this that lets you choose your own hours.

Let us show you how.

YOU'VE GOT TWO OPTIONS HERE... You can continue navigating the complexities of the fashion industry on your own, spending countless hours scouring the internet for tutorials and piecing together information from various sources in hopes of advancing your design skills. -OR- You could join the Designers' Sanctuary Inner Circle and swiftly elevate your fashion business by accessing expert guidance and resources tailored to your needs, empowering you to confidently create and market your own designs in just a matter of weeks!

This is the ONLY platform that provides comprehensive instruction on digital design across multiple devices, including Mac, PC, and iPad. And the best part? You won't need to invest in expensive, cumbersome design software. The tools we recommend are accessible on all three platforms. Plus, they're incredibly affordable.

No other program offers such comprehensive training across all three platforms!


I've never drafted a pattern before!


You’ll fit in with 96% of our other students… one established designer (that we know of) quietly enrolled into our programs. Everybody else has never drafted patterns before in their life!

We had them drafting their first pattern in their second week. If they can do it, so can you. We created this with total beginners in mind and included them as beta testers.

Whether you want to learn flat patternmaking, or digital patterns and grading… we got you.

I don't have enough time!

Can you carve out 30-60 mins a day, or 4-6 hours a week?

That’s like an episode of your favorite show.

I bet if you looked at your day, you could find a few minutes to pursue your own interests.

Little progress adds up over time. We show you how to make tweaks in your business that will make a big difference as you grow.

And if you need to take a break during the program (for work/family/school), it’ll still be there for you. You won’t be behind or lose progress with an active membership.

I'm afraid this won't work for me!

Oh sweetie, we totally understand the hesitation when you want something so bad but don’t believe it will work for you.

We had the same mind blocks and self doubt when we first started.

But that’s the beauty of our program. It takes you step by step, so you learn and build on your skills while practicing them.

We don’t just throw a bunch of stuff at you. Each module and lesson has a goal and helps you learn how to do a specific skill, even if you’re totally new.

We made building blocks to get you from where you are to where you want to be.

In the two patterns I have made before this program, I have had to spend an extensive amount of time researching what terms mean and how to do things that the pattern assumes you already know.

This is so much easier. Thank you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Well hiring someone just to make your pattern blocks would cost over $2000.

Taking the college courses you would need to get all these skills would cost $64,800 for your degree in Fashion, and $127,000 for your Business degree.

You would spend 6-8 years in college and still not know how to put all this together, since they don’t teach these business strategies tailored to your fashion business.
