  5. Hi I would like to ask about fashion design courses in Egypt the one in maryouteya

  6. Nice list!
    Just want to point out that “pattern making” doesn’t mean making visual patterns like the one in the included photo. “Pattern making” means making flat pattern templates that are used to cut fabric for a certain garment, which is what every dressmaker/seamstress are talking about when they say “patron” (which means pattern in french).

  7. Hi please i want to know which is better in pattern and sewing italian fashion academy or career gates? Thank you

  8. Cairo Contemporary Dance Center in Mohandessin is also a great place for Dance :).

Have something to say...
