OUR TEAM

Once upon a time, each of our consultants was in the same position that you find yourself today:

We've have built a network of professionals for our students / clients specifically to help with portfolio preparation. This includes fashion illustration, draping and garment construction.

Our tutors can also help prepare with ACT and SAT test preparation. Allow our consultants to prepare you for a future in the design industry and where you’re hoping to be.

"Design your life, was one of the very many words of wisdom I’ve taken from Susanna. I quickly learned that in any way you work with Susanna, she will passionately work with you to make your way within the industry on your own terms."

TESTIMONIALS

 
Susanna prepared me incredibly well for my first job in high fashion. She actively provided advice with her expertise in both commercial and high fashion based on each student’s unique needs and strengths.

My portfolio was carefully reviewed weekly with up-to-date requirements. Susanna was adamant that a student’s portfolio should both convey a student’s fashion aesthetic but also find its place in today’s competitive market. 

I now run my own fashion studio and with each step I thank Susanna for giving me a concrete foundation.

I met Susanna during my senior year at Parsons while studying apparel design. Throughout the year, she was a tremendous help in guiding me through my degree, as well as preparing for the start of my career. She has provided countless valuable feedback in building my portfolio, senior thesis collection, and presentation skills.

With her wealth of experience and knowledge, it was both educational and inspiring to be a student of hers. She was a wonderful teacher but also a mentor.

It has been 6 years since I’ve graduated and she is still someone I can go to for advice that I trust and respect.

Susanna Moyer’s understanding of international education transcends geographic boundaries and academic disciplines. She trains students from diverse backgrounds in an extraordinarily creative, yet practical fashion.

‘Design your life,’ was one of the very many words of wisdom I’ve taken from Susanna. I quickly learned that in any way you work with Susanna, she will passionately work with you to make your way within the industry on your own terms.

As my professor, she quickly helped me zero-in on my own personal goals. Thanks to her guidance, I graduated from Parsons with a thesis collection sponsored by Swarovski and even had a look displayed in Saks Fifth Avenue’s window.

Susanna is a rare gem in the fashion industry. She’s practiced and lived what she preaches. You will be hard-pressed to find someone with both Susanna’s glittering professional experience and genuine passion for teaching. If you’re willing to put in the work, Susanna will stop at nothing to help you design the life that you’ve always wanted.
