Camila Sigelmann has a track record for creating innovative curriculum and engaging course content. Her in-depth knowledge of how garments are designed, patterned and constructed began with a perfectly matched plaid jumper she sewed when she was seven. Camila has worked for several apparel companies designing kids and women’s wear. Her classroom focus is to help students build both technical and professional career skills. She holds a BA in Communications from the University of Washington, and is an AD&D graduate. For fun, Camila delves into ambitious DIY home projects and refurbishes furniture she rescues from dumpsters and garage sales.

Creating clothing has been a part of Ondine Toler-Scott’s life since learning how to sew at age seven. Parents who were teachers, a limited clothing budget growing up, and a variety of professional experiences have shaped Ondine into an instructor who promotes problem solving in her patternmaking and construction courses. She holds a BA from the University of California in Santa Cruz in Comparative Literature and is an AD&D Alumnus. As a contractor, Ondine has developed a wide range of product including uniforms for Seattle’s roller derby team, the Rat City Roller Girls, Franciscan friar habits, and sexy maternity bras. She teaches because she just can’t help it.

Dawn Smithson has been interested in fashion, art and design since she can remember. Before graduating from AD&D and diving into the apparel industry, she was a musician and a fine artist who was fascinated with clothing and furniture design. After eleven years of designing menswear in Seattle she turned her love of leather and all things structural into her own accessories brand. When she’s not teaching skill development courses to AD&D’s prospective students, Dawn makes luxury handbags, does freelance design and also makes patterns for local brands. For relaxation she paints botanicals, creates music, and dreams up new bag designs.
