Happy Students

"I chose both courses because I wanted to improve my techniques in illustrating and creating collections. From the (Designing a Fashion Collection) course I learnt how to illustrate better moving garments. Thanks to these courses I have improved my techniques and created a lot of neat and clean work whilst being technical with both colors and silhouettes. I appreciate it. Thank You."

Your Instructor

Tais has worked in the industry for 14 years and has been creative for as long as she can remember. Loving drawing, painting and creating from a young age, she began teaching herself everything she could about fashion design early in life. She learned from books and research and undertook countless short courses. Eventually she was able to commence her fashion degree in Milan where she learned from the best of the best. From her studies she secured a 6 month internship and then moved directly into a full-time position - and she’s never looked back. 

Tais has worked in and learned from high profile fashion houses across both Italy and Australia; and opened B Design Studio to have more freedom to be creative with the variety of clients she chooses to work with. My Studio School was born to provide the opportunities for skill development that she wishes she’d been able to access when she was early in her career.
