Visual Communication for Fashion Designers is a unique course. It is the result of my professional career in the fashion industry as well as 8 years of teaching fashion at Central Saint Martins, London College of Fashion, Bunka Tokyo and other fashion schools around the world.

Having worked with students from foundation to master degree level - as well with professional designers - I realised that one thing they have in common is the struggle to present their work and to express their ideas visually.


The career of a designer will always contemplate presenting work to tutors, colleagues or clients; and as a visual communicator, you will be often asked to get your point across through concise presentations. This course will equip you with the right skills to successfully present your work and develop your ideas.


Visual communication is a key element in every designer’s practice, and this six-weeks course has been specifically created for students and professionals to improve and master their visual communication skills.

"Oleg was one of the most highly respected and favourited tutors during my time at University of the Arts London. Out of all my lessons, Oleg’s were my favourites. Although I struggled at first developing my portfolio, his way of communicating and sharing with me how to interpret research, objects and themes opened up a whole new world. His accuracy and knowledge on finer details from an array of subjects was always impressive and admirable. We always requested more tutoring time with Oleg, and fellow students agreed; that we wish we would have had his tutoring a lot sooner, as it would of ignited our skill set to create and blend design ideas effortlessly with impeccable research."

" Oleg has been my tutor at London College of Fashion. He is a very dedicated, passionate and caring tutor. He has an extensive knowledge of fashion, fashion history, and visual media in general; as well as a great understanding of the fashion industry today. His portfolio classes took me through all the steps of communicating my ideas visually; taught me how to make my work look professional, presentable and exciting. It has really helped me going through the interviews, after I have graduated and helped me to get my first job at Maison Margiela. I always enjoyed attending Oleg’s classes, and hearing his perspective on my work has been very helpful and insightful.
