About the Instructor

Amanda Campbell

Amanda Campbell’s love for fashion design began at a young age when her Grandmother taught her how to sew. She began taking sewing and fashion design classes at a fabric store in her hometown when she was in middle school. While in those classes, Campbell discovered the power of clothing and how creating something with her own hands and being able to wear it instilled a sense of confidence and empowerment she had never felt before. She continued to sew and design throughout high school before attending college. She graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a B.F.A. in fashion design with a minor in media studies in May 2015.She started her own women's wear brand, ABLE By Amanda Campbell in 2013. She started teaching sewing and fashion design classes in Newport News in 2018. She is now a fashion designer for Sassy Jones in Richmond.
