We’re happy to have Annette Juilly coming to our Hilo store this July and August to lead some interesting classes on garment construction!
Here’s a bit about Annette:
Fashion Design has been in Annette Juilly’s life from a young age. Her grandmother was a
Fashion and Jewelry Designer who came from Oahu to California in her teens. Annette spent a
lot of time with her Grandmother growing up. Her grandmother brought her Aloha with her to
California, as well as her love of colors, design and people.
Annette has been in the Fashion Design Industry for many years working as a Production
Patternmaker, Fashion Designer, Wholesale and Retail Business Owner both in New York City
and San Francisco. She has taught College Classes at Fashion Institute of Design and
Merchandising in San Francisco as well as City College of San Francisco in the Fashion Design

She brings her love of Fashion Design with her to the Big Island. Her passion for clothing, color,

Annette and learn patternmaking with a relaxed and helpful teaching style.
