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.
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.
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.

How our courses change with COVID-19

Since February 2020 with the spread of COVID-19 the school had to suspend all training courses. Italian Ministry of Education and our Regional government have communicated that we will be able to start courses again from June 2020. Nevertheless we need to assure the safety of our students and put actions in place to prevent the spread of the virus again.

The major constrain that we need to face is the distancing. We won’t be able to use the facilities of the school as before because we need to assure a minumum distance of 1 meter between students. For this reason we have decided to change the way we organise our classes.

The three pillars of our training will remain the same but we will change the way we organise each of them

Lessons from the teachers

Our teachers have been working hard to prepare video lessons to cover all course topics. You will be able to access these contents at your own pace from home.

Individual work

Learning by doing has always been the center of our training. We will send you all the materials you need to work. Teachers will assign homeworks to assess your understanding of each topic

Review with the instructor

Teachers will dedicate 100% of their time to review your individual work and to give you feedbacks and suggestions on how to make better. This is a key moment of the course

Target Students

This course is dedicated to:

  • those who wish to work as designers in a shoe company or in a design studio and decide to take a short course because they have already a degree in fashion design or because they are already working and have time constraints
  • 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 4 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
