Tradition and innovation, rules of know-how and design methodology: classic artisanal techniques, advanced digital tools, and design culture that opens the mind to the future. A path that ends with the development of a final project of a bag that sums up each student’s individual ability to blend creativity with technical expertise. If you want to become a complete and knowledgeable professional, who can take on any role dealing with the product in the bag industry, with a technical and design culture worldwide recognized, the one-year bag diploma is without a doubt the right choice for you.

The Bag One-Year Diploma is made of three interconnected educational “missions”:

The 10-week bag design class starts with hand sketching and drawing of bags and its components with a focus on metal hardware design; it then proceeds with a specific training on graphic design tools such as Photoshop and Illustrator and it is completed with the learning of a methodology to design a collection: specifically students learn how to find inspiration from trends, how to tell their ideas, how to source materials and shapes to express their creativity transforming it into a consistent and innovative project as well as the basis for their future designs.

The 15-week bag technical course aims at providing the technical tools to develop and prototype different types and constructions of bags. First of all, the rules of pattern making, undisputed heritage of Arsutoria School, but also the practical skills to be able to assemble the first prototype of a bag. A complete course, with a strong emphasis on sample room activities, enriched by the knowledge of CAD.

The following 5 weeks are dedicated to work on an individual final project. The starting point is one of the designs created during the first 10 weeks design class: the development of a protoype of a bag that you will conceive, design and prototype with the support and tutoring of the professionals of Arsutoria school. A unique experience in the panorama of Italian and international fashion schools made possible by the technical skills and laboratory facilities of the most famous school for those who want to deal with product in the handbag sector.

The 8-week 3D course teaches CLO for Bag 3D design and Rhinoceros for 3D modeling of components (e.g. buckles, handles, ornaments, etc.).
