Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I love designing clothing, creating something out of nothing. Being able to design something that you see someone wearing is a dream come true. I've always been designing, ever since I was little. When I got a little older I started to teach myself to sew...very badly I might admit. Eventually after lots of practice I was getting better. I ended up going to school at The University of North Texas for fashion design. I graduated Cum Laude (3.5 GPA) with a BFA in Fashion Design and BBA in Entrepreneurship. Ever since then I have been working with several different companies in the fashion industry learning and expanding my knowledge. I now enjoy creating custom designs for people. Turns out that saying is true for me: If you love what you do, you will never have to work a day in your life.

Kala is a fabulous taylor! I tested her skills with alterations of a formal gown, pants with weird hemlines, shorts that needed the legs tapered, and shirts that needed shortening. She completed all of the alterations perfectly and ahead of schedule. I am so happy to have found her!

Absolutely amazing products and quality! Kalaelise design and made my wedding veil! It was by far more beautiful than any veil I saw in a bridal shop or boutique. I told her what I wanted and she had the fabric that night, and the veil was done a day later. So quick and so beautiful I got compliments on it all night! She also included the hair piece I worse but the veil clipped in with or without it so it was a great addiction ! I highly recommend using her for any design and fashion needs!

Kala is incredibly talented in the field of fashion design. I had the privilege of working as her Teaching Assistant in Fall 2020. Kala teaches industry techniques to university students using design construction, pattern design, and mass production techniques. She is great at encouraging students to be creative and doesn’t hold them back. She is very knowledgeable and experienced in the entire design process, whether that be for mass produced garments or private clients. This expertise translates into her classroom. Kala is extremely organized and this helps her when teaching multiple sections. She was a great mentor for me and taught me a lot while working with her.

It is always great working with Kala. She’s altered many of my clothes. She listens to what it is I’m needing done, and does exactly what I need. Plus her turnaround is always quick. She’s my go to!!

I can’t say enough great things about my experience with Kala! I came to her at the 11th hour with my bridesmaids that was about 5 inches too long and too large in the waist area. She got me into her schedule the next day, took my measurements so fast and had me in and out in 15 minutes. She had the dress ready and complete for me within a day and a half and it was perfect! I’m always so afraid to bring bridesmaids dresses to get tailored because if it’s done incorrect, you’re pretty much screwed on your $200+ dress. I’ve attached a photo so you can see the perfect length. 10/10 recommend Kala and I will be sending everyone I know to her!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I charge either hourly or by project depending on the type of work.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to meet the client and have both of us comfortable with each other. Making sure all their needs in their garment are taken care of. Then we establish what needs to be done to achieve exactly what the client wants.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a BFA in fashion design from UNT. I’ve worked in the industry for about 5 years with several companies including: JCPenney, Gerber Technology, ASKARI, and Indigo Agency Showroom, etc. I also have created all types of apparel, created an evening gown collection, and been in several fashion shows.
