Rigby - Gloucester Road - Fashion Design


"Every artist was first an amateur". Ralph Waldo Emerson

It takes 10,000 hours to be a professional - so here I am, sharing my skills and spreading some good old fashioned positivity! You're here to get results right? .... look no further!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I specialise in Foundation courses and portfolio's:

Wanting to create the perfect portfolio? Look no further!! Express portfolio's can also be created...

Fashion design
Textiles design
Silk screen printing
Sublimation printing
Heatpress master classes... EVERYTHING to do with art, fashion and textiles!

Sketchbooks, research projects...
Essays theses and dissertations.

Photoshoots for the best photoshoots ever - If you have the budget to blow! Think Rankin and Val Garland!

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Creativity is all that I know... I see in colours, patterns and textures...

At the Royal College of Art, I gained my MA.

Pushing the boundaries of paper manipulation into fashion, art and interiors. Experimentation is the only way forward!

- How much do you charge?

Starting at £45 an hour, minimum of 2 hours per session, plus travel.

Equipment can also be provided, contact me to discuss these options. I will always bring along what I can to support our time together.

I also teach abroad, these costs are different and would need to be discussed face to face.

- Where do you teach?

I mainly teach students and professionals from Saudi Arabia, Russian Federation and China for foundation degrees and portfolios.

Most attend Central Saint Martins, Chelsea College of Art and London College of Fashion.

- When are you available?

I will work around your schedule as best as I can!

Portfolios can be created on an express service - we can work as a team.

You may have a deadline thats tomorrow morning - Keep the coffee coming and we can do it!

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages and levels.

I specialise in Foundation degrees, creating portfolios and portfolio advice.

Creativity expands the right hand side of the child's brain - so why don't carry on till we are grey and wrinkly?

Being an artist/designer is a blessing, we see things totally different to others. Let's embrace this talent and enjoy learning - no matter what age.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Pre school development - MA level.

I have also helped business start- ups. Don't be afraid to ask for help, no idea is a silly idea... Stand up and be confident!

Great results guaranteed :-)

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Online tutoring is perfect for overseas students - I love to work odd hours - so the time difference is totally fine with me.

Payment is requested in advance unless you are a regular client and relevant paper work is in place.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Your here to get help and succeed... I am here to show you the best way forward with my professional guidance.

Lets make that change and you will never look back. Create the BEST portfolio and grow with confidence!

"Motivation is knowing you are learning, growing, and succeeding toward your desired outcome while sustaining positive momentum"

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been at the forefront of fashion for 12 years as an independent designer mainly for high profile brands and individuals.

Excellent at Foundation support and creating bespoke portfolios that CSM would find hard to turn down.

I landed my first job at Alexander McQueen in 2004, but realised I could do well on my own as a start up. The best move I ever made. I fully believe in entrepreneurship, believing in ones self and breaking down boundaries to defy what ever I can. If you can dare to dream - you can do it!

Researching is a particular favourite of mine, this is a great opportunity for us to learn and educate others about a totally new subject.

I am determined and successful: remember that success can be measured in many different ways. This is the beauty of life!

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

Yes, will provide as and when requested.

- Where and with whom did you train?

The Royal College of Art.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I attend exclusive openings at the Tate, Serpentine, Saachi, V&A and many more.

The art gallery and museums ares where I go to relax, I also shop for fashion and accessories to relax... Its the best job in the world when its your hobby.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I am delighted to say that I mainly work for high profile clients worldwide.

The experiences and the people that I have met, continually astound me.

The world is full of amazing people from all walks of life and I am ready to fully embrace it all with open arms
