Journey & Vision

Trade & Fashion Academy (TAFA) was founded by Kevin Lanney Smith in 2016, in Fabulous Downtown Las Vegas.  Many of the programs, and certainly a great momentum was created through Kevin's work at Stitch Factory and International Academy of Design and Technology, here in Las Vegas, NV.


It is the Vision of this Company to promote positive creativity, through fashionable and relevant education.  Our Academy offers both In-Studio classes, as well as online education options.  We teach youths and adults alike!  And our students vary greatly!!   We serve those that are looking to launch a clothing line or enter the fashion industry workforce, as well the folks that are simply wanting to learn how to sew.
