Hi, I”m Laura Volpintesta
I’m someone who always doodled, LOVED FASHION, but never “knew how to draw” until I got to Parsons School of Design when I was 18. Then my eyes, mind, and hands opened up to a wonderful world of magic, of visual expression and design. (As well as the spirit of throbbing, diverse, vibrant cities known as NYC and Paris.)
I love to offer this transformational journey to YOU!

Who are you?
A passionate curious learner who loves working with hands and heart….. who loves fashion, loves people, color, texture, shape….who wants to study on your own schedule, at your own pace, to develop your unique style and skills.
I know you can do this…I’ve been here…………….with a thousand students, (over my career teaching Fashion at Parsons in NYC………..)
each with a unique voice
To learn fashion design online means you play the videos as many times as you want or need. It means you can always ask a question. You can come to class when your energy is focused and your mood is on :0). You are free to check in to the online classroom whenever is convenient to you, from any where.
You can pause when life is hectic, you can take your time on a difficult section, or move ahead when you’re cruising through the material!
