About Alisha

A warm welcome to our Alisha Fashion and Dressmaking School website.  

Alisha Fashion and Dressmaking School is one of the leading tailoring and fashion institutes in Singapore. We have developed a reputation as the only Indian sewing school in Singapore.

Alisha Fashion and Dressmaking School is the brainchild of two sisters, Mdm Kamala Koddiappan and Mrs Kala Baskaran. (Sew Sisters).

Our success stories are not possible without our dedicated and professional teaching since 1975. We have always incorporated the latest trends in technology, ensuring we meet the needs of a dynamic economy.

All courses are taught by Ms Kamala, who is the founder and director of Alisha and Fashion Dressmaking School and Principal Trainer, Ms Kala Baskaran. Both of them are passionate about empowering their students to unfold their innate potential and creativity within them to become skilled dressmakers.

Our Vision : Imparting lifelong skills
