House of Daniel is a design school in the Greater Toronto Area with programs of various lengths that allow aspiring designers and creators to produce their own fashion line from scratch. Infuse Magazine had the opportunity to sit down with Princess Ehimwenma, the Director of the academy, after their most recent Back Porch fashion show, which was a runway display of the collections from the most recent graduating class.

“At House of Daniel, I train fashion lovers or anyone that is interested in creating their own fashion line. I teach them from the basic concepts, pattern making, sewing and finishing gowns,” Princess explains after the show, over light refreshments and cake. The event was held at the Yaser and Mayasa Textiles building in Mississauga, an intimate setting with VIP guests and a handful of event photographers.

“The six designers showing today are from the six-month class. We also have a ten-month class which covers women’s outfits and menswear, and a twelve or fourteen-month class that covers up to draping, wedding gowns and evening outfits.”

“We help our students find their own voice and their own concept in the creative aspect of it when it comes to bringing their designs to life. It helps them to be able to develop their ideal creations. Mostly with pattern making – which can be challenging, but I am bringing the Italian method of pattern making to Canada. I studied fashion design in Italy as a pattern maker and seamstress. I graduated in 2004 but I have always loved to design garments.”

“I have been with the House of Daniel since 2016. I started with one on one classes and quickly found out that there was a big niche market. I had people contact me from social media, the Yellow Pages, Kijiji, and online who were interested to learn.”

“My favourite part is the passion of the students. Seeing them bringing their pattern drafting to life and creating a garment, putting them on mannequins… there is just the most passion. There is a satisfaction of it, and I am so happy to see them grow.”
