Hi!  I’m Laura! 

Your free gift bundle is enclosed here with video tutorials and ebook.  I hope that this is just the beginning of the journey we’ll walk together and that these tools TRULY SUPPORT, inspire, and nudge you deeper into you voice being expressed gorgeously through fashion and design.

I’m here to  teach the fashion -curious and fashion creative everything they need to know to be experienced and self-expressed in the arts of fashion by creating atmospheres that are safe, playful, inspiring, enthusiastic and warm- so that you can freely expand into the fullness of the voice that is YOURS ALONE and honor that uniqueness.

I’ve taken my 25+ years designing in NY and teaching in one of the worlds top fashion programs at Parsons Schoo of Design,  and bring it to YOU on your time, space, style, and pace. 

Here we are all about creating, 

about undoing  and untangling fears and limiting beliefs

about diving deep into deisgn and art, 

finding our voice THROUGH honing our skills from a place of self motivation that burns within. 

Developing our style and our message. 


  • model drawing for all sizes,
  • fabrics and inspirations,
  • design sketching,
  • tech sketching,
  • flat sketching
  • detail drawing
  • fabric rendering
  • croquis
  • line sheets,
  • creative and conceptual collection deisgn for different seasons, customers,muses and occasions.

We work with gouache, pencils, ink pens and creative exploration and design. to hone the skills while developing a relationship withour style and ways we like to work as well. It’s learning and self-discovery at the same time.

FREEDOM FASHION PGORGRAM takes SFFI and includes open access to all of the additional courses I offer a-la-carte, From Patternmaking , draping, iPad illustration, Gouache Intensive for Design, to Portfolio, you can customize your learning and bring it all together to feed your strengths and curiosity, into a comprehensive portfolio of skills and experiences for professional and creative use! Fabrc, Form and Flow course explores techniques for rendering special fabrics and silhouettes for eveningwear and other more outlandish and exaggerated situations!

MODEL DRAWING MAGIC is the deepest dive into figure drawing and drawing, PERIOD, to loosen you into a flow that you can trust. To get experienced and to know the body so you can draw from the inside-out, any body type that you want to, with dynamics, expressiveness, depth, and accuracy at the same time! I often recommend supporting it by joining our weekly sketch group sessions, but it isn’t required. You can join any time, and cancel anytime, on a monthly basis.

But there are smaller courses too that you can engage with, aside from all of the free content I’ll be sharing with you via email and on my blog.  Smaller courses like the FREE Draw Without Fear bundle,The  Fashion Resources Experience, Fashion Drawing BOOST (negative shape and plumbline exercises), FOUNDATIONS BUNDLE,  Beginner WATERCOLOR masterclass.  Fashion Design Infusion: 8 Masterclasses. is half price at this link. 

Fashion needs inspired voices of real people who fearlessy create from love, with love.

And that’s what we do here.  You are at exaclty the point in your journey that you are meant to be.

Embrace the opportunity and the desire inside you that has always known that Fashion is your Language and your Superpower, your creative outlet and expression.

Thanks you for being here, enjoy your stay!
