During the first week of the course, participants will learn the basic concepts of the construction and hand drawing of different styles of bags. Students make a free hand sketch and learn how to use different line weights to give volumes and provide details to the sketch.
The second week of the course will be dedicated to the use of Adobe Illustrator to create technical drawings and Photoshop to create illustrations of bags. Initially we will explain the main basic functions of the two programs. Subsequently, starting from a hand sketch, we will teach how to make a precise technical drawing of a bag with stitching details and accessories with the support of Adobe Illustrator. Next step is how to add materials such as leather and fabrics and other details needed for a realistic illustration with Photoshop.
Third week will be focused on the process of collection development: from market analysis to the research of the trend forecasting sources available to the principles of merchandising. The training program includes the analysis of how to design structures of collection, families of products, materials and their applications.
At the end of the third week each student will focus a final individual project that will be developed during last week with the support of the teachers. The project must include a mood-board, a small collection with freehand drawings, rendering and application of materials and colors. Last day of the course each participant will give a short presentation of his/her final project that in the future can be further developed in a portfolio.
