A very warm welcome to The Fashion School. I'm the TFS Principal, Rhonda Babington.
I'm an internationally-trained fashion teacher based in Canberra's inner south. My mission is to help my students make their own perfectly fitting, gorgeous clothes, using environmentally-sustainable and ethically-produced fabrics.
I've been passionate about fashion, sewing and pattern making all my life. Growing up in Sydney, I was inspired by my Mother, a talented clothes-maker who started me on a lifetime of creating beautiful clothes and learning as much as I could about techniques.
I was fortunate to live and travel overseas for many years. Whilst living for four years in New York, I trained at the Manhattan campus of the Fashion Institute of Technology (part of New York State University) and worked in the New York fashion industry.
Also deeply inspired by European fashion design and techniques, I have professional standing through the Centro Internazionale Alta Moda Sartoriale, Rome, Italy.

With best wishes
