Hey there, I am Friederike, a recent graduate from Central Saint Martin’s MA course in Fashion Design. I am here to push your fashion career forward through 1:1 online tutorials in a broad range of fashion design and portfolio related practices, tailored to your needs!
Book me as your tutor and I will tailor the lessons to your individual needs. We will kick off our time together with an open conversation in our first meeting, finding out where you’re at and what you would like to achieve. If you’d like to work towards your application to a fashion degree course (BA or MA), I am happy to constructively critique your portfolio (or start one from scratch with you), if you are in the middle of an ongoing project, I will guide you through all stages of your fashion project!
A couple of words about my experience:
Before my time at CSM, I studied fashion design at University of the Arts in Berlin with an exciting exchange semester to Parsons, the New School in New York City.
For my BA studies I applied to three schools: ArtEZ in Arnhem (the Netherlands), the Royal Academy of Arts (in Antwerp, Belgium) and the University of the Arts in Berlin and I got into all three courses. I am here to help you create a portfolio that gets you into your favourite fashion course too!
After graduating, I gained valuable insight into the luxury fashion industry working at Burberry’s print design department. And I recently held the fulltime role as a teaching assistant at the Fashion Retail Academy in the heart of London, prepping students aged 17-19 for their future fashion career and BA courses.
I am also happy to discuss any questions you have about the industry or studying on a fashion course in London, Berlin or New York!

With almost 10 years of experience in the field of fashion, including but not limited to textile- and surface design, free draping on the stand, pattern construction, fabric dyeing/printing, and the making of prototypes, Friederike brings with her a wealth of knowledge and expertise.
On top of that, she is a patient, driven, and an unassuming person with a penchant to teach. She has a remarkable knack to connect with students and inspires them. Having worked together on various projects for almost 10 years now, I have constantly felt encouraged by her frank and cheerful persona, sound advice, and practical approach to problem-solving.
Rike was the single reason I ended up getting in to CSM. She was able to guide me step-by-step on all the areas covered because she had not only been through the process, but knew the people doing admissions on a personal level. She knew what they like and what they don't like.
There's no way that would have been possible and I couldn't recommend her more highly.
If you're a fashion student wanting to go to the best universities to study under the best tutors, I would get Rike ASAP!
