Hi I’m Chelsea Harriman. Welcome to Sew Montclair!
Many roads have led me here to Sew Montclair! From learning to sew as a teenager, to receiving my MFA in Costume Design from Rutgers University. I've worked professionally in fashion, costuming opera, theatre & dance on Broadway and beyond. Currently I teach Apparel Construction at Montclair State University and Fashion History at FIT. My greatest joys are teaching, building my students’ skills and vision, and inspiring creative passion for fashion in people of all ages. I live in Montclair NJ with my husband and 2 teenagers. This is a special town - full of people and places so unique and so creative. That’s why I’ve opened my studio here. It’s Sew Montclair!
Here’s some of my favorite work!
Wedding dresses: It’s so amazing & rewarding to be part of a beautiful bride’s special day. This is Louise, a dear friend, who is still gorgeous 14 years & 2 children later.
