Danish Designer offering tutoring in Fashion Design and Sewing in Manchester.

Methodology

I was born in Denmark and decided at age 21 to pursue my dream in Shanghai, when I was offered an internship and subsequently a permanent job. It proved to be an excellent way to gain fast-paced experience from the fashion industry, as I got to work in the middle of it all. I have a Degree in Garment Technology and Design.

I like to structure the lessons and base the teaching methods on your needs as I believe it should be done in the way that suits you best, in order for you to get the most out of it.

Experience

I have been invited to TEKO Design and Business School several times to give lectures on life and work in the fashion industry in China. I have also been giving sewing classes for beginners.

In my last role of Design Manager I mentored and inspired interns from different creative educational backgrounds and ensured they developed the required skills to pass their final exams.
