Helen Solodkina

Helen Solodkina is a designer, coach and consultant with over 20 years of experience in the Fashion industry. Her main passion is personalized design based on figure analysis and innovation techniques. Information technologies and fashion design innovations have become the second Helen’s big passion.

Helen has taught many fashion courses at the George Brown college (Toronto, Canada) and the Olds college Fashion Institute (Calgary, Canada), such as technical design, pattern design, garment construction and computer applications (Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop for fashion design).

When students are not sure about the profession they have chosen, Helen advises: "Close your eyes and listen to your heart. If there is void when you think about your profession, choose a different one. But if your heart sings, you will overcome all difficulties and barriers on your way and succeed for sure".
