I joined poornima mam after completing my pg in a famous institute. I understood how much little I know, after meeting her. I was so impressed by her knowledge and work, that I decided to join her class. I choose the topics I wanted to master. The class was so informative that I got what I wanted. Now I am happy that I can answer confidently when I meet people from my field and my job interviews were a breeze. Thank you mam.

Good teaching is possible only by a person who is actually practicing the skill. Poornima Mam is one such teacher and trainer. She makes sure, you learn what you have joined her for. She motivates students so much that everyone likes to do more. I don't know how time flies when in the class. I wish her very best. She made me capable of what I am today. Thank you Poornima Mam.


Zoya Khan

I loved Poornima Mam's teaching. There is so much in Fashion Designing. Not just cutting and sewing. I want to be her one day. Thank you Mam. She is the best, I recommend her.


Vyshnavi Iyengar

I loved the Fashion Designing course. She is the best tutor I have ever come across. She prepares you so well, that you will be boosted with self confidence. I love her method of teaching. She has enormous patience. She just smiles and clears all our doubts, even when we act stupid and irritate. Thank you Mam. We need more teachers like you. She is the best choice, if you are really serious about fashion designing.

Poornima is an excellent tutor who is very knowledgeable and conveys her knowledge of complex material in a manner easily understandable. Highly recommended.


Kavya Anand

A Fantastic Teacher. She is very patient and positive. She knows the subjects very well. She is very talented and no questions go unanswered. It is so fun to learn from her. She just not teaches the syllabus but gives industry insider tips as well. She runs a beautiful bridal boutique, which adds up to her experience and skills. She gently corrects mistakes so you won't feel discouraged. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for Fashion Designing courses. I have learned Pattern Making, Indian outfits for Women (Blouse, Dresses and Wedding outfits), Western outfits for Women, Fashion CAD, Aari Embroidery and Machine Embroidery.


Kiaan Agarwal

A great Teacher. Ms. Poornima is a patient, intervening and vastly knowledged person. I can't thank her enough for all the help that she gave me. With her help I am able to take my work to the next level. I will definitely recommend her as a tutor. Though I did my B.Sc, from a reputed Fashion Institute, I was not confident enough to proceed further. Poornima Mam not just helped me with my skills, but also helped me setup my own boutique. She is ocean of Knowledge. More of us need you Mam. You make difficult topics seem so simpler. Thank you.


Shanta S

She is the best teacher. Though I was the eldest of all her students, she never made me feel out of space. For her all her students are equal. She took extra care, and taught me the concepts. I appreciate her patience with every single student. She won't let you out, unless you are thorough with your subject. Her knowledge in the subject is really commendable. She is my confidence, and I can now stitch my own blouse without any hesitation. I have seen students coming to her for practical experience even after completing certifications with best fashion schools in Bangalore. I really wish her all the best in everything she does. We need teachers like her. I would recommend her to anyone who is really serious in fashion designing.


Shanthi S

I decided to go to Poornima Mam after seeing the reviews on Urbanpro. I wanted to learn blouse making. I already had tried a few teachers for learning blouse making, which was not upto the mark. When I called her, she said her class will be too far for me. But I wanted to learn. As imagined, she taught me to be the best in blouse stitching. She also taught latest designs, how to find out trends, how to take proper measurements, how to do color combination, how to choose designs for different body types and all. I am so confident now that, I stitch blouse for others as well. I run tailoring business from home, and I am happy. I recommend Poornima Mam for everyone. Thank you Mam, for building my confidence as well as making me self reliant.


Saghaya A

It was really a good experience with Poornima mam. She provided me an excellent exposure to fashion designing concepts. I gained enough knowledge in Fashion Designing . She is an expert and has excellent knowledge in all the concepts of fashion designing. I would definitely suggest her for the enthusiasts who are willing to gain knowledge in the field and want to prove themselves in the field of Fashion Designing. Highly Recommended.


Zainab Athiqua

She is an amazing teacher and supporter. I still remember when I had no hope for my passion of fashion technology. Then I find Poornima mam. She taught me every point from basic. Her teaching style encourages me to be professional. She is the best I have. Thank you Poornima mam.

Poornima is the best faculty when it comes to the specifics in fashion and design. The classes are exciting and the space is a fun filled place. There is a lot of difference between being into fashion and pursuing it professionally. There is a lot of difference in teaching styles and approach to the subject at hand between Poornima and other fashion institutes. She is the best & makes sure you understand the subject. She was recommended to me by a friend, who studied BSc with me in one of the best fashion institute in Bangalore. I realised, I was no where when I wanted to start a fashion boutique. Poornima came as a hope. She is an industry insider and knows every bit of it. She helped me not just understand the basics, but also pushed me to the professional niche of the fashion business. She helped me setup my boutique and is still helping me whenever I am in doubt. I recommend her to everyone - whether you are a fresher or a graduate from fashion institute, if you want to be best - just go to her. She will customize the course according to your need. She is sweet, but strict when it comes to results. I wish her all the best and appreciate her for taking free classes for girls, who are economically poor.
