Adrianna (Rianna) Aguirre graduated from The Academy of Art University in 2012 with a BFA in Fashion Design, with a focus on Menswear. Since moving to Portland in 2013, she has worked in various niche alteration and bespoke tailoring studios and with local fashion designers. She currently does technical design work for several indie sewing pattern companies including Thread Theory Sewing Patterns. She loves most to teach sustainable construction, alteration, and pattern-making techniques so that everyone can feel empowered by having the skillset to sew and making clothing that fits their body.
