Get ready Calgary, because we’ve got a whole new version of retail therapy for you to try out in the city. Say hello to the HAT School of Design, a creative studio where you can unleash your inner fashion designer.

The idea comes from Tamara Itani, who graduated at the top of her class in the Fashion program at Central Saint Martins. If you’re unfamiliar with the name, think of it as the fashion equivalent of a Harvard business grad teaching you about personal finance.

After spending some time in the world of haute couture, Tamara found a massive gap between the world of ‘corporate fashion’ and those who are just starting out in the industry. So, she decided to open her own fashion design school and studio right here in Calgary.

At HAT School of Design, you can choose between an informative or an instructive session. The former is essentially your introduction to the world of fashion design, while the latter is a more in-depth experience that lets you create your own design with the help of experts.

It’s the perfect alternative to the classic birthday or corporate Christmas party. Forget about painting mugs, it’s time for you to design that dress you’ve been thinking about since you were a teenager.

Racking your brain for a present this holiday season? HAT School of Design offers both personal shopping and wardrobe audits as well. Perfect for those friends that either don’t have enough options this winter or way too many.
