One of my previous roles was as Director of Courses at the National Tailoring Academy in Dublin when it first started. Then the Academy specialised in professional development courses aimed at industry professionals and college graduates. I was part of the team who developed the CPD Diploma in Bespoke Fashion Tailoring, accredited by the Dublin Institute of Technology and managed this course until June 2015, along with over 15 others available at the Academy. I also taught on some courses including corset making and menswear pattern cutting
Through this I also ran a module for, and lecture on, DIT’s postgraduate Diploma in Fashion Buying and Management, which is one of the things that led me to moving into a career in fashion buying where I currently work
My first lecturing experience was as a tutor and lecturer on Limpert’s Academy of Design’s Image and Fashion Styling course and I’ve lectured in fashion history for Re-Dress.
