MY NAME IS DENISE
The foundation for my sewing started back many years ago when I was seven years old. I would sit at the sewing machine with my grandmother every Saturday morning and she would teach me the techniques of how to operate the sewing machine.
I was so proud of the very first cotton skirt I made with her. I loved sewing so much as I grew up,
I then took sewing classes at the YWCA for many years and had been in many of their fashion shows. From my education at the YWCA, I was able to enter the “sewing with wool contest” and was blessed to have won on several occasions. I continued my education by attending the Rhode Island School of Design which helped me enhance my designer skills.
The idea of ElegantDesignsbyDenise.com, came into fruition by some friends of mine. I decided to create handmade designs.
I truly enjoy designing garments that will make people smile and make their special day more memorable.
