The Designer

Carla Panaggio designs and constructs custom clothing for the individual, a passion first made evident when she felt compelled to make clothes for the stuffed animals she and her sister played with when Carla was just six years old.

As a teenager, when Carla played guitar in an all-girl band, she made stage wear for the group.

Carla received a Bachelor of Science degree in the Fashion Merchandising, Textile and Design Program at the University of Rhode Island.

Since completing her studies, Carla has been busy creating distinctive sportswear and eveningwear for a variety of clients and occasions.

Later, while living in Hawaii, her designs were featured at Nuage Bleu Boutique in Paia, she was a partner in an artist co-op in Makawao, and served as a design consultant for Maui Life Clothing Company. She also designed and made uniforms for several Maui Restaurants, including the Chart House.

Other design projects have included bridal dresses and parties, team uniforms, men’s Hawaiian Shirts, and prize-winning Halloween costumes. One of Carla's dresses even made it to a Hollywood film premiere!

Carla has continued her education through sewing and designs related classes at local fabric shops and colleges. She also remains current with technology and trends in her field by subscribing to trade magazines.

Miss Panaggio is also a member of the American Sewing Guild.
