A BIT ABOUT ME (: - I am a young fashion professional. I graduated with 1st Class Honours in Fashion Design from New Zealand. After having finished my degree I was able to teach at my old high school in New Zealand. During my time there I taught the year 10, 11 and 12 students techniques of fashion drawings, pattern drafting, as well as fashion constructions, which helped them to successfully complete their NCEA level one and two assignments. I am now working in the fashion industry and have just finished a fashion buying internship with Vivienne Westwood. I am now hoping to go into the fashion industry more fully and grow as a designer.
I am giving lessons on fashion drawing, hand fashion illustrations and fashion pattern drafting.
I approach each lessons by understanding the project brief from the students first then together I break down the steps with them in order to accomplish the final outcome. This way the student also understand for themselves the important skills they need or will need to learn in order to complete the tasks whether that'd be designing a collection, learning fashion illustrations and/or pattern drafting.
In regards to my teaching experience, after I graduated I was able to have the opportunity to return to my old high school where I taught the year 10, 11 and 12 students techniques of fashion drawings, pattern drafting, as well as fashion constructions, which helped them to successfully complete their NCEA level one and two assignments. I was also given the opportunity to give multiple ‘Inspirational Seminars’ about my experiences to help encourage the students to follow their passions in the Fashion & Design industry.
I have been extremely passionate about what I do (fashion) since the age of 11 and I knew I wanted to continue to motivate and inspire those who has the same passion too. I believe this makes me a great teacher as I am able to help inspire younger generations to work hard for their career goals.
I have had a vast experience working in the fashion industry which has allowed me to understand the competitiveness in the industry and what important skills you need in order to succeed in this field. I have been fortunate to have the opportunities working with Vivienne Westwood as well as Vogue Thailand. I am now currently continuing to follow my dreams and goals to become a fashion designer.
I am a young fashion professional who is passionate about all things art and design. I am enthusiastic about what I do and I'd love to share my knowledge and skills as well as passion for anyone wanting to learn more about fashion drawings, high fashion pattern drafting, couture fashion illustrations which includes painting.
The way I teach is:
1). First understand what you are looking for to achieve and the brief of your project you may have that needs to be accomplished.
2).Then together I break down the components of what needs to be done in specific steps with you, this way you are also able to learn how to attack the task when you are given one in the future for yourself.
3). Before going into the teaching process I'd want you to set 1 fun goal for yourself and 1 more dedicated/serious goal you want to achieve once we have completed the tutoring course.
4). During the teaching process I want to make sure you learn new skills you wanted to acquire well BUT MOST importantly HAVE FUN and feel inspire by what you are doing. FASHION, ART & DESIGN is FUN and inspiring (:
