I’ve been teaching Fashion Courses at Parsons School of Design in NYC for 20 years now.

I’ve had over a thousand budding designers and illustrators come through my rooms and learn from beginner to porftolio level fashion courses in model drawing, illustration, and design.

EACH of them has had a UNIQUE VOICE, and I would love to help you bring out yours.

Based on my “WHOAH!”  discoveries as a student and as a teacher, I’ve developed fashion courses for you because you can:

  • try new art supplies and tools
  • collect and create from inspiration
  • explore and discover your own unique style
  • learn standing, posed model drawing
  • render color and texture
  • sketch details, design collections

  1. looking for a beginner’s design illustration class for my soon-to-be 17 year old daughter. She has designed and illustrated skirts and models with no prior experience and I want her to grow and hone this skill. Want to give this as a gift and looking for a beginner’s Saturday course. Any suggestions?

  2. Hi I have a question about the Skype fashion illustration tutoring lessons. If I pick the 1 lesson trial is that for only one lesson or is it 1 lesson per week. And the 4 lessons would it be 4 days out of the week?

  3. HelloLaura, I’m from Nigeria, and I don’t have any experience in drawing and sketching, how can I learn and what’s the duration and at what cost?

  4. Dear Olga, let’s chat via email or Skype.
    my classes are beginner friendly for sure!
    You can study at your own pace: the “Freedom Fashion Semester” is like a semester of fashion study in a design sketching/ concept class (beginner friendly, still)
    The Fashion Faces class is much more concise and uses iPad or tablet to sketch instead of watercolors and pencils.
    Either one you can move through at the speed you choose, but the faces course is much shorter.
    Please email me any specific questions and we can chat more!
    thanks for you inquiry!

  5. Hello. I’m in New York and would like to learn how to draw and design. how long is the training on your course and how much it costs. I do not have experience in this field.

  6. Hi Laura!
    Do you have a contact email so I can ask you a few questions about your fashion illustration classes?
