Students will be challenged with a complete program that will provide a deep overlook of the knowledge required nowadays by the industry.
The approach of the course is practical so, not only students will learn every aspect of shoe making: from design to pattern making through a wide variety of technical patterns for both woman and man from casual to dressy styles but will also have the opportunity to deep dive into materials and therefore understand how to source them.
Students will also have the opportunity to explore their creativity through the development of a collection where they will design, create a merchandising plan therefore enrich their portfolio or create their first one for the basis for their own brand.
After acquiring technical skills, students will work thoroughly with Italian artisans and technicians in our sample room producing their own pairs of shoes from sneakers to pumps and from sandals to laced-up.
The program offers a great balance between innovation and tradition as students will also learn the use of specific softwares for 2D and 3D modeling: students will realize a microfiber prototype designed through these tools and cut it with state-of-the art equipment. They will experience a real life simulation of what happens prior to getting into a sample room.
Arsutoria School strongly supports students who wish to launch their own brand therefore dedicates an insightful part of the program to prepare Startup projects addressing how to work with factories and how to approach the very first collections.
Organized visits to factories, show rooms and specialized trade fare exhibitions will complete the training to prepare graduates to embrace the industry.
The course is intensive and students will be evaluated regularly on each aspect of the course in order to become self-conscious so to maximize their skills acquisition and also to understand which profession within the shoe industry suit them best.
