Who We’ve Worked With

“Loved the tutors at Atelier, their teaching styles were all about the student and how we learnt”

Atelier Melbourne is an inspiration, I fell in love with the studio, the warmth and charm was so calming. I enrolled in Certificate II and III in Fashion Design and Technology face to face and completed the courses in under 18 months. The face to face seminars were so energizing, everyone was so passionate about what they were making. What really helped was the on- going access to the trainers, by email, phone, video conference Skype, what’s app for quick questions. It worked well for me and now I love working in my own ‘pattern making’ business.

My mother said I should learn to sew at an academy owing to the fact that I was always making dresses for my friends but that was impossible. I didn’t finish high school, really hopeless at reading. Atelier Melbourne opened up a whole new life for me. I now own an ‘alteration business’ and I still make dresses for paid clients. Before I started the course with Atelier Melbourne, I received tutoring in reading and writing skills, in a short time I was ready to start the Fashion Design certificate III course. Atelier Melbourne’s teaching strategies are really helpful and was able to pass the practical and written open book assessments.
