ONLINE! Italian Fashion Designer, Haute Couture shows:RALPH LAUREN, DIESEL. Graduated with honours from Politecnico di Milano,Istituto Secoli Pattern Maker.Sewing,Fashion Design,Pattern making,Modaris

Methodology

My teaching is based on the knowledge and on the MILESTONES I acquired during my studies combined with my job’s PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE: from ready-to-wear to high-end fashion, to luxury.
I like to involve you using extra resources, VIDEOS, TUTORIALS so you can keep learning after the lesson!

HOW ARE THE LESSONS ORGANIZED?
After listening to your needs and requests, I draw up a personalized program for any level, from basic to advanced. You can choose from the following topics (and beyond):

1. BASIC SEWING: how to use the sewing machine, stitches and machine stitching, hand stitches, small sewing works, garment repairs
2. GARMENT CONSTRUCTION & TAILORING: nesting, cutting, construction, tailoring, prototyping
3. PATTERN MAKING: patterns, transformations, size grading, made to measure, fitting, Moulage
4. FASHION DESIGN: collection design & development, colour palette, sketches, technical drawings, textiles, prints, fabric & material research
5. LECTRA MODARIS: CAD software for pattern making, the most requested by fashion businesses. Lessons for professional pattern makers.

HOW DO ONLINE LESSONS WORK?
I am 100% equipped (tested and working method!) to teach you comfortably from home through SKYPE/ WHATSAPP/ ZOOM video call or your preferred video call app. I will show you all the steps you have to take on my sewing machine or by manual techniques. You’ll never be alone! In addition, I will send you some support material.

WHAT MATERIAL DO I NEED?
I’ll give you all the details depending on the program. You’d generally need:

For sewing/construction lessons:
- sewing machine (any model is good for getting started)
- sewing set (scissors, needles, pins, thread, fabric scraps, remnants, tailors chalk, measuring tape)

For Pattern making lessons:
- large sheets or paper roll
- pattern making set square and ruler
- stationery, measuring tape, awl

Background

Hi! I’m an Italian Fashion Designer, graduated with honours and Highest Distinction from "Politecnico di Milano". I later gained a Pattern Making Diploma with Highest Distinction from the renowned “Istituto Secoli” in Milan, a leading Italian fashion school with international students from all around the world.
I worked for major Milan, Venice and New York luxury fashion brands (RALPH LAUREN, DIESEL) and I lived in Australia for years perfecting my level of English.
I developed a well-rounded experience and knowledge from design to pattern making, garment construction and production. I worked with the best Italian Ateliers to bring Italian know-how on the runway.

I love clean lines, the subtle complexity behind plain sculptural volumes, silk and CHALLENGES! I have eye for colour and proportions, extreme precision and attention to detail.

I spontaneously invest a lot of passion and energy in sharing and teaching what I know and what I have learned in my school, professional and life path. Those who know me define me extremely engaging and competent in explaining my subjects clearly and this is my greatest satisfaction.

Marianna è un'insegnante fantastica! Mi ha dato ripetizioni d'inglese come nessuno aveva fatto prima, facendomi amare la lingua e mostrandomi applicazioni concrete di essa nella realtà. Basa il suo rapporto insegnate-alunno sulla fiducia e il rispetto reciproco, senza eccedere con la severità ma allo tempo tempo ti aiuta a seguire regole precise ottime per assimilare la lingua. Consiglierei a tutti di prendere lezioni da Marianna, ha una conoscenza multidisciplinare e il suo metodo di insegnamento si adatta ad ogni tipo di alunno seguendo le loro specifiche necessità.

Pier

Professionale, super preparata e disponibile! Il suo metodo di insegnamento è molto chiaro e riesce a rendere semplici anche gli arogomenti più difficili!
La consiglio vivamente a chi necessita di un'insegnante qualificata e un insegnamento efficiente!
Super consigliata!!

Carlotta

Marianna mi trasmette la sua passione e motivazione ad ogni lezione. È molto chiara e precisa, riesce a farmi capire bene gli argomenti che prima mi erano difficili e confusionari.
Sono una studentessa universitaria e Marianna è stata molto disponibile a formulare per me un programma per superare un esame molto difficile che non riuscivo a passare. Con lei ho capito l’importanza di avere un’insegnante che ha vissuto per anni in un paese madrelingua. Non è facile trovarne e questo fa di lei una delle migliori!
Inoltre, fornisce materiale ed esercizi per sfruttare la lezione al meglio in autonomia.
Super consigliata!
