Courses

MPA attendees will learn to develop a collection of shoes or bags, closely studying every technical and design aspect, supported by professionals operating in the field. Once learned a method, each course provides the participants the opportunity to create their own mini-collection ready to be manufactured. In order to make this path, the courses host a very limited number of participants.



Intensive Full Time Courses

Classes are held in small groups, allowing individual attention and the possibility for students to work together with technical and design professionals focusing on their particular interests or weaknesses. Courses are held in a spacious workshop equipped with professional tools where the students are able to work with the finest Italian materials. In addition, visits to top factories and industry fairs are held regularly, in order to show the class the best of Italian manufacturing and design. Attendees are welcome from all over the world; while living in Milan, the culture of fashion and design will surround them, stimulating their creativity and encouraging cultural exchange and discussion. Courses are held Monday - Friday, 10am – 5pm.

SHOE CONSTRUCTION AND DESIGN COURSES

This course aims to give a 360 degree view of shoe construction and design and its integration with the marketing, branding and manufacturing processes. The course is divided into technical and creative aspects. Technical lessons provide a very practical training including lessons on materials, pattern making, designing on the last and instructions for realizing a draft prototype. The design part foresees the realization of a collection, giving individual attention to every participant. Students will learn how to create their own collection along with hand drawing techniques and use of Photoshop for the final presentation.


As students are not allowed to work on machines, the whole production process is shown directly in a factory.
