The One-Year Accessories Diploma offers you
in-depth knowledge of both the shoe and bag sector:

The shoe 15-week technical training course has the aim of providing you with the technical tools needed for the pattern making and prototyping of men’s shoes, women’s shoes, and sneakers.

The 15-week bag technical course aims to provide you with the technical tools to design and prototype different types and constructions of bags.

The 15-week shoe and bag design course begins by acquiring the tools needed for hand drawing, digital illustration and 3D modeling of shoes, bags and their components.

The final 8-week project represents a blending of the previous two paths of technical training and design: a capsule collection of shoes and bags that will be conceived, designed, and prototyped with the support of Arsutoria school’s technicians.
