When Rachel Haggerty thread her first needle in a junior high school home economics class, she never imagined she would one day be dressing models as they prepared to walk down the runway.
A self-described tomboy, the last place the High River resident wanted to be was home economics, which she eventually took under protest.
"I just figured there was more value in learning how to change the oil in a car," she explained. "So I tried to take boy's shop class, but they wouldn't let me."
Haggerty now works as a fashion designer in her free time, and credits home economics class with instilling her love of sewing. Take a virtual tour through her home design studio as Haggerty explains her creative process.
