About the lesson

I tailor each session especially for you.
Following our initial complimentary 30 minute telephone consultation where we define your individual requirements, I create a plan of action for us to help you achieve your goal. The purpose of this call is to also to determine whether we have the right chemistry and will work well together.
Previous work/a portfolio is great to see, if you’re a beginner we can discuss what you’d like to learn and achieve.
Whilst getting to know one another I may provide some resources for us to discuss so I can see how your brain interprets 3D relationships.
I am very honest with my approach, and will help you turn your weaknesses into strengths, as well as encouraging you to develop your own unique design style, brand & process (and the confidence to execute!).
I will encourage you to think outside the box & realise potential routes to your goal you hadn’t previously considered.

I’m helping you with:
• Collection curation, line up, technical drawings.
• Concept development; Broadening your perspective & exploring your creativity.
• Creating a vision and portfolio that demonstrates your designer DNA.
• Organising photo shoots, contacting models, photographers (film & digital), make up artists, hair stylists, studios, retouchers, milliners, shoe designers, knitters.
• NDA’s & contracts.
• How to speak with factories to ensure the prototype meets your specifications.
• Organising bespoke elements, for example: 3D printed buttons, gold and silver work, CLO3D, laser cut features, digital and hand embroidery, custom knits.
• Collecting the right ingredients & contacts to start a fashion label.
• How to create a story for your brand that is authentic & timeless.
• Improving your drawing & collaging skills.
• Where to find amazing fabrics, papers & trimmings!
• Developing original textiles.
• Creating a pattern, and grading it.
• Using a sewing machine.
• Organising pattern cutting & seamstresses for toiles, one off garments & limited run lines.
• Designing your own fabric & having it printed.
• Designing an embroidery and having it produced.
• Dyeing fabric.

I provide 24 hour support.
Having a mentor not only offers a critical eye and advice on how to develop, but is also a chance to speak openly with someone who can understand the emotional struggles associated with working in Fashion industry. Part of my approach is to help you enjoy your work, and to find a way of making your work work for you.
Any questions you have about working in the industry or studying a Fashion degree I am more than happy to help with.
