15 January 2017 • Fashion Design Portfolio - Introductory

A fantastic class in which I leaned how to make a fashion trend board and design clothing using my handwoven fabric. Anita is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and generous teacher - an expert in the field of pattern design and fashion. I have completed two of her classes and intend to enrol in others in the future. Excellent value. Recommended for designers and design students or for individuals who wish to create their own unique designs.
