My Fashion education is from The Ryerson School of Fashion graduating in 1976. After receiving my Retail Diploma from the School I returned the following year and completed all courses but 1 for a Diploma in Design. I spent the 80's Working for Edie Johne Fashions Ltd./EDJ Designs Inc/ Edie Johne for Silhouettes, as a grader, pattern maker and assistant designer. I became a part-time instructor at the School of Fashion in 1988. In 1989 I joined Excess Design Services which offered contract patternmaking & grading. In 1994 I opened E M Bates a contract grading service and continue to this day to work as a Contract Grader and teach Grading in the School of Fashion
