Develop a unique fashion design vision with Central Saint Martins alumna

Firstly we will go through a consultation to define your individual requirements so I can tailor the sessions specifically to you. 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 will also provide some resources for us to discuss so I can see how your brain interprets 3D relationships.
Following this, I will create a plan of action for us to follow to help you achieve your goal.
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 can help with:
• Creating a vision and portfolio that demonstrates your designer DNA.
• Creating a portfolio for application to a Fashion Degree.
• Help collecting the right ingredients & contacts to start a fashion label.
• Developing original textiles.
• How to create a pattern, and how to grade it.
• How to use a sewing machine, and how to sew different types of seams, collars, cuffs, pockets, hems, sleeves, waistbands, trousers & fastenings.

I provide 24 hour support.
Any questions you have about working in the industry or studying a Fashion degree I am more than happy to help with.

Fashion Consultancy - Learn how to feel confident in what you wear
I am here to help you select or (even) discover new fashion statement pieces. Are you tired of your wardrobe, or do you just want to spice it up? Your old shirt has been sitting in your drawers for ages, and you just don't know how to use it? Your friend's dinner party is coming up, and you just don't know what to wear? This is where I jump in. I'm originally from Italy, but since moving to London I started to experiment with my looks. Soon I found an ally in fashion and started using what I was wearing to express myself and who I truly was. When I wear what I feel good in - I feel confident and ready to 'take on the world'. I want to help women like me to feel the same and truly embrace who they are. I'm an Event Coordinator for a Women's Refugee charity in the morning, but I experiment with clothes during the weekend or whenever I travel (which is where I draw most of my inspiration from). My dream is to open my own rental's club online site so that I can share the dresses and unique pieces I collected along my travels with the broader community. I'd be so humbled to help you, feel free to reach out and ask me any questions.

Sew your own comfortable dress - upcycling to wear and feel good
Sewing and wearing self-made clothes made of new material is something very special in and of itself. It is even more exciting to sew a dress from second hand clothes, curtains, duvet covers or bathrobes, especially if these also have a special sentimental meaning. If you can't sew yet, I'll teach you. If you don't have any fabrics yourself, I also offer a selection of various washed second hand fabrics that we can process. The course includes - the design and manufacture of your own pattern in katcouture style (see photo) for your dress - The selection, quality control, and maximum use of existing substances / materials - Cutting and ironing the pieces of fabric with the help of the pattern / template - Basic techniques of sewing on the sewing machine and how it works - Tips & tricks that can also be used for future sewing projects Since everyone is very individual when it comes to the time required, the times are determined individually and calculated every hour (25, -). Classes take place in Au / Haidhausen. Course suitable for everyone between 11 - 75 who are fit in terms of motor skills and dexterity :)

Swahili and English for beginners intermediate and advanced
I have been teaching English as a private tutor for the past 2 years. Through my teaching experience I also learnt that every student's needs and struggles are different. I enjoyed sharing knowledge with my students and watching them gain confidence in holding conversations in English and in their reading and writing was very fulfilling. Explaining ideas in ways that make them easier to understand is something that I delight in.I would describe my teaching style as kind, fun and patient. My goal as a teacher is to meet the requests of the students and understand what they aim to achieve so the the lessons are customized to the student's concerns. I teach pronunciations, engineering terminology, grammar and will focus on conversational skills. I do not give homework and I normally do not prepare for lessons.
