Shingo Sato, a designer of Japanese origin, trained in techniques of tailoring, pattern design and dressmaking, has presented his cutting-edge system at the schools of greatest tradition and prestige around the globe: Parsons the New School for Design, Central Saint Martins, Marangoni, Bunka Fashion College and Paris College of Art, among many others. He is characterised by using a totally practical methodology, where his students learn by making garments and experimenting with his pattern system. His method, known as “Transformational Reconstruction” is based on the recreation of geometric figures, drapes, 3D volumes and on the Japanese technique of origami. He has worked with master couturiers such as Azzedine Alaia (1986-89, Paris) or the Tussardi brand (1989-91, Milan), among others. In 2000 he created his own design studio in Tokyo, where he develops his own collections. (https://www.facebook.com/trcuttingschool/)

Louise quickly progressed to sewing garments for herself and developed a life-long passion for needlework in all its many forms. After high school she completed a Diploma of Adult Education and then entered the workforce holding various training roles in the corporate world. Louise also completed a two-year certificate, by correspondence, at the Ecole Haute Couture School of Sewing and Design in Canada. After retiring from the workforce, Louise Sparrow have enjoyed combining her two loves, sewing and teaching - "It is a real joy to pass on my knowledge to people who share my passion for fabric, thread and needle."
