Haus of Vining was formed in 2020 by fashion designer/instructor Ivy Vining, providing resources to help designers and patternmakers expand upon their skills and create garments of the utmost quality. Offering a continually expanding line of pattern blocks for patternmakers, fashion sewing patterns for sewists, and video support materials for both, Haus of Vining is an extension of Ivy's dedication to garment construction perfection. All products sold through Haus of Vining are created entirely by Ivy Vining, and demonstrate the highest standards in fit, form, and attention to detail.

With both a grandmother and great-grandmother who were costume designers/seamstresses, it's no surprise that Ivy Vining has been sewing since the age of 5 after inheriting her grandmother's sewing machine and giant stash of vintage fabrics and patterns. After graduating with a degree in Fashion Design from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles (FIDM), Ivy worked numerous fashion industry design jobs before deciding to focus on custom work and teaching, where she could showcase her skills in intricate garment construction techniques. Her custom work in both fashion and costume ranges from bridal to drag, and she looks at each custom piece as an opportunity to learn (or figure out!) something new. Upon deciding to go into teaching, Ivy found unexpected joy in sharing all of her sewing and patternmaking knowledge with others, having spent multiple years acting as the Education Coordinator/Instructor of Sewing Arts Center Santa Monica, and later a full time Instructor of Patternmaking, Draping, and Industry Sewing at her alma mater, FIDM Los Angeles. 

"With Haus of Vining, I want to do my part in securing the future of finely crafted clothing. Fast fashion is quickly destroying our perception of quality, and causing the slow death of time-honored art forms like tailoring and couture. In a world of 'hacks' where fast and easy is being favored over what is actually best, I aim to inspire a desire in fashion designers to create their best through techniques and tools that help them achieve it. I'd like to see a re-elevation of standards, because an idea is only as good as its execution. Haus of Vining is about getting people excited again for masterful execution, so that their ideas can truly live up to their full potential." -Ivy Vining
