Kat - Latimer Road - Personal coaching

Methodology

Kat Marks is a creative leader in fashion enterprise and design with focus on pattern-cutting, sewing/material manipulation, and illustration with the use of digital platforms including Adobe Indesign and Adobe Illustrator.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Creative design in the fashion industry including accessory, womenswear and menswear design. This also includes basic to advanced pattern-cutting and sewing/construction techniques and methods in the creation of garments.

Fashion illustration using a variety of materials and techniques.

Hands-on workshops in traditional leather-craft (cutting, dying, hand-sewing), bag making and leather-moulding.

Digital platforms including basic Adobe Photoshop for fashion retouching, basic to intermediate Adobe Indesign for fashion promotional materials and portfolio-building and basic to advanced Adobe Illustrator for fashion flats and specification/technical drawings.

Creativity coaching in the development of fashion portfolios and CV's for university application and/or industry presentation. Creativity coaching also applies to tuition focused on helping my clients prepare for their first year at university and/or working through individual design projects.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

In 2008 I graduated with a Bachelor of Design in Fashion Design from Toronto's premier School of Fashion at Ryerson University. In 2009 I relocated to London to study at London College of Fashion to which I graduated in 2011 with a Master of Arts in Fashion Artefact (accessory).

- How much do you charge?

£35 per hour per person with travel costs to be met by the client. Minimum booking of 2 hours for London based clients. Minimum 4 hour booking for clients outside London. I am happy to negotiate a reduced rate for group sessions.

- Where do you teach?

I am happy to travel to my client's home to teach. I am willing to travel anywhere within the United Kingdom so long as travel costs and accommodation (if applicable) are covered in addition to tuition hourly rate.

- When are you available?

I am available Monday to Sunday (including holidays) between 8 am and 10 pm.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Majority of my clients are university students and professionals in the corporate world and creative industries but I am happy to teach under 16's so long as a parent is present during tuition.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I do not provide online tutoring, but in addition to tuition, I provide my clients with a 2 week period after our sessions to email me with additional questions regarding our work together.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Be adventurous and dream big!

Please feel free to email me to discuss the type of tuition you are seeking and I am happy to customise a session to fit your needs.

Thank you for viewing my profile.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

As an establish designer, my work has been widely published in such magazines at Italian Glamour and Dazed Digital. I have collaborated with some of the industries most prestigious members such as iconic British photographer Nick Knight of SHOWstudio.com. Team-building and fashion film is part of my practise. I use film and photography as a way to communicate my vision to a larger audience.

I have extensive experience in fashion design and the creation of garments and accessories. My skills range from illustration, design, pattern-cutting, and sewing. I work with a variety of materials such as leather and acrylic Perspex in the creation of fashion artefacts and accessories.

I use Adobe Illustrator to create patterns and technical drawings and Adobe Indesign to create promotional material and portfolios.

I teach at several universities across the UK providing students with group and one-to-one tuition in fashion and accessory design, including tuition on fashion technology such as laser-cutting (using Adobe Illustrator), and sonic welding.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Although I have never had a CRB check done, I would advocate delivering tuition in a mutually safe and comfortable environment. I insist on tuition for students under 16 years of age be conducted in the clients home with a parent/guardian present.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

International Talent Support - An organisation that showcases and supports emerging talent in the fashion industry (2011 Accessories finalist)

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Amongst my current students are first year BA fashion and accessory design students undertaking study at Coventry University and DeMontfort University. Together we work with design/illustration, pattern-cutting and sewing techniques and craftsmanship in a variety of materials. There is focus on creating and building dynamic portfolios in preparation for entering into industry.
