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.
