Established in 1987, Margétoile School of Fashion Design has been offering beginning and intermediate level classes in fashion design for over three decades. The school's intimate setting, a converted horse barn surrounded by lush woods and flower gardens in Northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, promotes a gentle atmosphere of creative inspiration.

At Margétoile School of Fashion Design, private instruction is taught by Margee Minier, a 1975 graduate from The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, holding a degree in Fashion Design. Margee has worked in the fashion industry on an international level for over 30 years. The one on one, student/teacher rapport allows each student to blossom at their own pace with rapid absorption of the skills and lessons presented to them.

the basics of sewing, Draping, Flat Patternmaking, how to manipulate a Sloper, how to analyze and develop a Croquis,
