Harnessing more than 25 years of experience in the fashion industry, Ella Bella Rozio’s Institute of Fashion’s founder Rocio Sanchez and her daughter Gabriella Tello guide aspiring designers ages 6–18 through an array of couture courses and workshops. During multifaceted three-week design courses, students learn the elements of collection design while developing their own styles, bringing outfit ideas to the page with fashion illustration lessons, and study how Benjamin Franklin’s invention of no-press slacks helped turn the tide at the Battle of Valley Forge during a trip back through fashion history. Alteration demonstrations help aspiring designers customize preexisting wardrobes, and basic machine sewing and hand-embroidery instruction bring garments to life in time for students to debut collections at a final fashion show on Sunday, December 18. Ella Bella Rozio also hosts introductory sewing workshops, which help artisans explore their creativity while learning beading, machine-sewing techniques, hand-sewing methods, and which fabrics make the best invisibility cloaks.

Ella Bella Rozio's Institute of Fashion

A true family business, Ella Bella Rozio's Institute of Fashion combines the talents of founder and 25-year fashion-industry veteran Rocio Sanchez with her daughter Gabriella Tello's fresh take on trends and her son Fernando Tello's marketing savvy. While Fernando handles business matters, the mother-daughter duo helm the school and its workshops, leading fledgling designers through courses in fashion history, window display, and wardrobe planning.

Students find inspiration for their own creations in the custom-made gowns of Rozio Couture. Though the designers focus much of their energy on bridal and red-carpet wear, they also nod to the needs of everyday fashion with creations such as the ella 1 dress, a simple black tube that attaches to swooping skirts, dramatic ruffles, or elegant flotation devices.

Customer Reviews

The hand sewing class taught 3 different sewing techniques. I was able to create something once I successfully completed all 3 sewing techniques. The teachers really wanted to make sure you left knowing how to successfully sew correctly.
