This 4-week course can be taken separately or in conjunction with the 12-week pattern making course (and then being discounted to € 2.700,00). We highly recommend taking the entire path of 16 weeks to those who wish to work as footwear designers or launch their own brand. On top of the 2 weeks dedicated to hand sketching and digital design with Photoshop and Illustrator, students will learn processes of collection development: from market analysis to the application of the important activities of merchandising.
Overall objective of the course is to immerse participants in the process of creative development of a collection of footwear, focus their creative ideas and present them through a good level of sketching.

Target Students

This course is dedicated to:

  • those who wish to work as designers in a shoe company and decide to take a short course because they have already a degree in fashion design or because they are already working, and they cannot take a longer design course
  • those who are planning to start a shoe brand – even if they do not have a background in shoes – and they wish to better understand how to manage the design of their shoes. We suggest these students to also take the 3 days “startup your shoe brand” course
  • those who have a shoe company and after taking the 12 week course decide to take this course too to better understand the design process
