Private Fashion Tutoring

Private Fashion Tutoring

Private fashion tutoring  is a wonderful way to work, as you can ask your questions live and get immediate feedback. Work with an experienced coach who can customize your experience and focus on your needs.

Me! I’ve been illustrating, designing, and teaching at Parsons Fashion in New York since 1997!

We can work on your building or reviewing your portfolio, or START FROM SCRATCH with beginner model drawing and art supplies.

Right now you can purchase a single private fashion tutoring session (60 mins $250)

Message info@fashionillustrationtribe to schedule your session. Payment are made to

30 minute sessions are often VERY rich. $175. Sometimes that’s all you need to get started on something, and then see if you want to check in again a week or two later.

You’ll need to download SKYPE and have a Skype username and webcam.  Also, check out the awesome deluxe set of supplies you can work with, or let me know what you’d like to work with and we’ll go with that!

After you sign up, you’ll be emailed the same day to set up your appointments that week, or schedule as you go.

I’ll be asking you to send me your first, second, and third choice time/day slot choices once your payment is clear and I will work with you to find a schedule that fits!

Is Fashion Tutoring for you?

Fashion tutoring means you can watch me and ask questions in real time. It means you can share your work with me and we can review it together.

You’ll get enthusiastic attention and guidance. I want to see you thriving and shining in your expression and skill.

Ask me anything or set up your first session.

RIGHT NOW you can also take advantage of this special offer:

This means you can study privately with me and keep the Freedom Fashion as your reference videos. Either study strictly with me, or follow the self study by yourself.   Then, schedule your sessions with me as support when and where you need it!

You can purchase that option here.

We can work digitally, with markers, or with watercolor/ pencils (my FREEDOM FASHION COURSE is a gouache course)

I can guide you through creating/ tweaking your portfolio, or start from scratch with beginner model drawing.

I can teach you technical drawing/ flats as well. Learn  how to research, sketch and present unique fashion collections to build your portfolio!

Let it FLOW!
