Katherine Summer's Profile

About

When I was four, I shredded Grandma's favorite skirt for a hula costume. 20 years later I graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) of San Francisco with a degree in fashion design. At present, I am Head Seamstress at Vera Wang in San Francisco.

Previously I have worked at Academy of Art University as a sewing and patternmaking instructor. Also, I was Assistant Designer at Cari Borja (www.cariborja.com), a patternmaker, cutter, and assistant at Azadeh Couture (www.azadehcouture.com), and as a stitcher at Teatro Zinzanni (www.teatrozinzanni.com).

My designs have been featured on the cover of Knitty magazine, on the bodies of dancers worldwide, and dozens of San Francisco Bay Area brides.
