Hi there, I'm Priscillia - I am a women's wear designer and digital content creator. I enjoy the process of creating garments, it's exciting, therapeutic and empowering. I switched from being a certified Microbiologist in 2014 to follow my passion of making women's wear. Now with a Diploma & B.A. in Fashion Design, sharing this passion with others has come to be my new favourite thing. It's almost magical to be able to make a beautiful garment from flat fabrics.

I had a great day. Priscillia adapted the course to my level of experience. She encouraged me to do a lot of the work myself and was supportive and never critical. I really enjoyed our day, and the food was super tasty!
