This class is for those who are interested in developing the skills necessary for tailoring the custom-made jacket. Teaching starts from a very basic level. And since classes are small, students are given the opportunity to thoroughly develop and master the practical skills and knowledge necessary to work in the industry or to start businesses for themselves. 

Upon completing this course and all assignments, qualified students will receive a certificate of completion to be used as recognition of training in the field. If starting a business, you'll receive advice to help you achieve success. 

Whether 18 or 80 years old, it's never too early or too late to get your tailoring career going!
Tailor and instructor Ayao Agbeve was inspired to sew at a very young age. His great talent and work ethic landed him in charge of the alterations department at the US Embassy in his native Togo West Africa. Inspired, he opened his own design business making custom tailored clothing for men and women, before moving to the United States. Ayao speaks fluent French, Spanish and English. He is a great asset to the Esaie Couture Design School.
