School of Couture

Design your own Wardrobe

Imagine if every article of clothing in your wardrobe were fitted and tailored to you. If every item you owned were unique and completely customised to your fashion preferences and tastes! Tatyana and the School of Couture are here to share the best kept secrets of couture design, empowering you to create beautiful and wearable works of art, designing your perfect wardrobe.

Tatyana is a highly skilled and experienced teacher imparting three generations and over 100 years of accumulated knowledge to her students. Lovers of fine fabrics and quality laces will learn the traditional skills and techniques required to master these luxurious textiles.

The Art of the Basic Block

You will be guided through the creation of your personalised Basic Block, a set of patterns developed uniquely to fit your body. Created using your own measurements, your Basic Block will allow you to create custom clothing to fit and flatter. Using a system formulated alongside a mathematician and grounded in high-end Russian couture principals, the Basic Block is an invaluable tool that will revolutionise the way you create clothing.

Courses to Suit Every Level

From the very beginner to the advanced expert, the School of Couture welcomes every level of skill into our classes. Classes are intimate in order for each student to gain individual attention. Interstate and international students are supported through the provision of sewing machines and specialised tools. Kits are available for purchase if desired, with exclusive access to imported fabrics and laces available.

Be Empowered

Tatyana is a third generation couturier who has always been surrounded by beautiful clothing and high end-finishes. Her dream is to see Australian women be empowered in designing their very own custom-made wardrobe. Renowned international and local teachers offer specialised classes, including advanced couture techniques, beading, silk flower design and even shoe construction!
