Do you need some help with your fashion portfolio?
We are two experienced teachers of fashion who offer 1-1 tuition to help you with portfolio preparation (foundation, BA, MA, internships, jobs etc…).
Are you on a fashion course and want some help with your project?
If you need additional tutorials to help you with your college work, we offer 1-1 tuition in various subjects, such as: design development, research, pattern cutting, draping, sewing and making.
Whatever your level and experience we can help.
We are both flexible and approachable: We can meet you at your place, our studio, a coffee shop or wherever is most convenient for you. If you are not based in London we are also happy to meet you online.
What our students say about us
“...Jeanette and Petra are highly perceptive, professional, honest, kind and brilliant tutors.. I highly recommend taking their courses and having them access your work with their private tutorials.”
Le Dao. Freelance Apparel Designer
“The teaching stimulated my creativity and took me to a new level. Also very interesting is that Petra and Jeanette have different but complementary approaches and feedbacks, it changed the way I am designing now."
Carolina Busato, fashion student
“I highly recommend Petra and Jeanette as tutors and I encourage anyone who is working on a fashion portfolio or project to learn from them. … I built a portfolio that I am proud of. It helped me to find myself in the way it makes me happy, confident and respect my career.”
Juan Manuel Cortés Aragón, sales consultant at Christian Dior
I am a fashion designer living and working in London. I have been in the fashion industry for 15 years and following my graduation from the acclaimed Fashion MA at Central St. Martins College of Art and Design, I launched my own brand in the summer 2013.
I developed my dressmaking and design skills while working alongside innovative designers such as Haider Ackermann, Hussein Chalayan and Peter Jensen. While pursuing my professional career as a designer, I am teaching at Central Saint Martins College and the London Art Portfolio. I have previously also taught at Norwich University of the Arts.
I teach pattern cutting and garment making, research, fashion design, creative development and styling. I have experience preparing successful portfolios and understanding specific entry requirements at all levels.
I studied Fashion Design Womenswear at Central Saint Martins and the Royal Academy of Antwerp. Since then I have run my own womenswear and knitwear business and worked alongside designers like Ann Sofie Back, Sharon Wauchob and Peter Jensen.
For the past ten years I have been an Associate Lecturer at the famous Central Saint Martins BA Fashion Design for womenswear as well as the knitwear Department. I am a long standing tutor at the CSM short course program and have also taught fashion design at numerous other colleges e.g. London College of Fashion, University of the Creative Arts and Epsom.
After years of working as a teacher and being involved in the admission process at Central Saint Martins, I have developed an extensive knowledge of what a successful portfolio looks like as well as working with students of various nationalities and backgrounds.
