FAAS X PENSOLE X PNCA

We are honored to partner with Pensole Footwear Academy founded by D'wayne Edwards and MLab founded by Suzette Henry to bring a unique cross discipline product creation program to the Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) in Portland, Or. The three studios are located within the Pensole Academy space and work closely together to inspire, mentor, and direct potential designers into the industry.

FAAS X PORTLAND APPAREL LAB

We work with PAL to support the students' experience in learning the product development part of the production process. Students learn pattern making, industrial sewing, draping, and fitting to take their concept to a finished sample. PAL is, also, a full time maker space for additional industry services.

FAAS X COMMUNITY

As a design leader in the industry, it is not unusual to find Angela Medlin, founder of FAAS, speaking at community and industry events on the subjects of sustainability, designing with purpose, being a 'whole creative', and creating without limits.
