In 2016 Krista Schepers sees her passion culminating in a store on the Hulsterweg in Tessenderlo. In her shop she offers a lot of sewing supplies in addition to fabrics and wool. From the outset, she opts for the finest fabrics of the highest quality.
You can also follow sewing workshops with her. And during knitting cafes you will experience a pleasant afternoon with like-minded people
Krista’s husband, Bart Engelen, installs window decoration for Cortina. If necessary, he takes care of the whole with light joinery. Thanks to his past as a carpenter, he can do this in no time. Thanks to their many years of experience, Krista and Bart advise you on furnishing your interior.
Both around the use of color and the use of curtains, fabrics and cushions. Cortina realizes your dream with creativity and exclusive materials.

modeIn het modeatelier staat de originaliteit van iedere leerling centraal. In het eerste jaar verwerf je inzicht in het begrip mode. Stap voor stap leer je een lichaam tekenen in de juiste verhoudingen. Je maakt kennis met verschillende stoffen en materialen. En je leert kleuren combineren.
Later leer je onder deskundige begeleiding je eigen ideeën vormgeven en realiseren. Tegelijkertijd maak je een reis doorheen de kostuumgeschiedenis en leer je op een vernieuwende manier kijken naar modeontwerpers en beeldende kunst.
De studiedruk ligt hoog en mag niet onderschat worden. Er wordt veel gedrevenheid van jou verwacht. We tonen jouw creaties tijdens de verschillende projecten die we in samenwerking met derden organiseren.
The “Bachelor in Textiles: Fashion Techniques” training allows students to put the following skills at the service of their future employer:
Designing trends and models, being able to translate them into technically successful patronage: skills that are both technical (model making, cutting) and artistic (styling),
Know the production processes and industrial constraints and thus manage the making of models: technical and organizational skills
Being on the lookout for the market, consumer needs, understanding marketing mechanisms and thus creating the conditions for commercial success: management and marketing skills.
The training is versatile. In various materials, the creation of models is complete.
From the first days of training, the student is led to develop his creativity by expressing his personality. He is sensitive to the attention to detail, the professionalism and the care expected in the future profession.

Having your wedding dress made to measure is a very special, unique and strong process to really come to a dress that fully accentuates your beauty.
You can come to Ziza Couture for a beautiful piece unique that matches who you are. A perfect fit and the right cut offers so many possibilities for every body.
No ordinary sewing lessons, but learn to sew for yourself tailor-made. You can find the full curriculum at the bottom of this site.
HOW DOES CUSTOMIZATION WORK?
If you would like to have something custom made, we will make an appointment. We discuss what you would feel good about and which direction the design may take.
Then we look at how many passes will be needed. Depending on the design, I test the dress first, which ensures a perfect fit and cut.
In order to be able to work uniquely for everyone, I don’t have a stock of fabrics, but together we look for the most suitable materials.
Do you have any questions or would you like a first idea of the prices before you come by, send me a message or just give me a call.
ABOUT FASHION DESIGNER LINA
Making people beautiful is my mission 😉
When I see someone, I immediately think in dresses, fabrics, colors. I don’t know myself differently, always looking for beauty in everyone and everything. Many thanks to my little golden fingers, that I can fulfill this job in this way.
For more than 10 years I have specialized in making and designing exclusive tailor-made clothing. I was educated with a master’s degree in fashion design, pattern drawing and haute couture embroidery.
“Customization is a process, an adventure. As a fashion designer, I listen and look, together we look for the right materials, fit and style. No ready-made dress code, but a unique piece that grows around you.
Customization has its price tag. But it has such beautiful and strong advantages: through customization, many more people can wear what they really dream of. Many pieces of clothing, whatever your figure, often don’t fit in ready-to-wear, even if you’d like to. Something that’s tailored is way more flattering anyway, whichever cut you prefer, simply because it fits. I often hear people say to me in the studio ‘I’ve dreamed of being long-dressed for so long, but I really didn’t think I had the figure for that’ or ‘I didn’t know that my figure looks so much better a proper cut’. Every body is so different and customization has so much to offer.
In the past years I have already drawn patterns and made and adapted designs for countless bodies. Accentuate what makes someone beautiful, envelop what feels vulnerable, look and listen. It has now become my specialization.
I don’t make collections, I like to work around a person. I mainly use the knowledge I gained with my master’s degree in fashion design to come up with original and unique designs that suit the customer, in addition to custom work.
A new vision on clothing, supportive in who we are, that’s what I’m going for.” lina
