I'm a womenswear designer and digital content creator. I have a diploma in design and a bachelor's degree in fashion design. I've been creating fashion forward garments for almost five years and absolutely enjoy sharing the mechanics of garment construction. I believe fashion design should be accessible to anyone interested in understanding what goes into making beautiful clothing.

Priscillia is a talented and creative fashion designer. She assessed my knowledge and skills, asked about my expectations, and adapted the experience to maximize my learning. This was a really wonderful experience. My learning goals were met. She is warm, friendly, and easy to be with. Her studio is inviting and well-appointed. This was an excellent experience. Oh, and by the way, the Trumpet Skirt is beautiful.

Priscillia's sewing class was the best! I cannot recommend it enough to anyone who is interested in fashion. She was a great instructor, as I can attest to since I walked out with a gorgeous skirt that is custom-fitted to my body. I would say that it is quite a full afternoon, with much to learn especially if you are a beginner to sewing (which I was and am). If you are at all considering this class -- or any crafts-related class in London -- this is the one to take. Also, I consider it good value when you factor in that lunch is included, and you walk out with a clothing item that is specifically made for your body. She is a patient, funny, and highly engaging instructor. Highly recommended.

What a fantabulous day! I had never touched a sewing machine before this experience and I left Priscillia's workshop with my own self-made skirt! I had a really great afternoon, Priscillia is SUPER UBER patient, fun, attentive and an overall great designer. She also has the most amazing African prints/fabrics to choose from! I thoroughly recommend her experience.

Today I had my class and I have to say I highly recommend it. Pracillia is EXACTLY how she is in her videos. Very warm, friendly and helpful. She answered all my questions (and I asked alot) and was so helpful. I love my skirt and can't wait to wear it! If you're wondering if you should do the class I say go for it!!
