Learn to design and create your own clothes with 6-year instructor.
Experienced fashion designer of 6 years available to teach eager students of all experience, levels and ages! I adjust and build my lesson structure so students learn what they are interested in and want to learn, while building strong foundations of basic sketching concepts to sourcing materials, technical specs, and realization. I specialize in women's clothes but can easily teach you men's wear, children's wear and accessory design.
About Sylvia L.

Hello! My name is Sylvia and I'm here to help you learn a new skill or master it to a new level! I've been teaching private lessons since 2001 and am currently available to teach lessons at your home, at the public library, in my studio and online. I have loved helping my students with education classes such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, mathematics, english, science, dancing salsa and cha cha, painting, illustrating fashion, sewing, computer coding, playing the violin, to personal training. I have always had many interests and luckily I worked hard at them with great teachers to achieve great levels. I went to University of New South Wales and earned a degree in Software Engineering in 2003, and also Sydney TAFE to earn a Fashion Design degree in 2009. I'm a friendly and understanding person and my teaching style is patient, motivating, and positive. I believe everyone can achieve what they want with the right mindset and the right opportunity. My aim is to help you reach your goals and make you feel accomplished!

Sylvia was great during my first session. She was very patient and understanding being that I was new to adobe illustrator. Her step by step approach was very helpful.

I took my first class with Sylvia this week and she is a very good teacher. She helped me learn a new skill on first class by showing me than having me do the same tasks. She is patient, straight forward in her instructions and a clear communicator. I have signed up for 3 more classes because of my first class with her
