LCF Graduate Designer offering sewing, design, and pattern cutting classes in London. All levels

Methodology

There is a lot to take in when it comes to designing and constructing a garment and so much information can be confusing which is why I take an approachable approach to teaching. either a one to one session with information and techniques or classes with what you need learning from or a set class with bullet points of goals that will be reached during classes.

Background

I am a womenswear designer with a degree in fashion design from UAL: London college of fashion
I also work as a technician at the university I graduated from.
I have assisted in teaching classes from secondary age range up to university degree level for UAL.
I have more than a years experience working in Fashion.
I have mostly worked for Luxury ready to wear fashion.
