  • All our sessions allow an extra 10 mins at the start to ensure any technical difficulties are resolved before your valuable paid for time starts. If at any stage you are struggling or something is not working you can call us and we will talk you through it. 
  • You will need to have the Adobe software installed in order to practice in between sessions, if you are unsure how to get this then let us know, we can help.

Absolutely brilliant way to study. Especially for CAD. It’s almost as though it was designed especially for it. I wasn’t sure about learning this way to begin with, as I thought that it could be distracting to my concentration and felt nervous about it. I had absolutely nothing to fear, especially with the whole lesson being recorded and you could go backwards and forwards for constant reminders. The fact that there was screen sharing was also a good thing. This is for certain a way forward for me and will highly recommend.


Womenswear Designer

After 15 years working as an accessories designer I still hadn’t converted from hand drawing to illustrator. Erica made the lessons fun. and simple to understand and de-mystified the programs. I’m really delighted with the results and can’t recommend CAD for fashion highly enough!


Accessory Designer

Having had several CAD lessons from Erica at CAD For Fashion, I can highly recommend both her personal lessons and online sessions. Erica guided me through the Skype set up process and made the experience very clear and comfortable for me, as I’m quite unfamiliar with technology! Erica was able to share her screen with me on Skype so I could watch exactly what she was doing and take clear notes, in exactly the same way as if I was in the studio or in person. I will definitely be continuing my sessions with Erica online.


Knitted Accessory Designer

Erica is an amazing teacher on fashion Cad! I have learned a lot from her with a few teachings and will continue to do more classes with her. She is patient & precise & extremely helpful. I highly recommend taking a class with her – she also shares the recording of the class with you to practice on your time later.
