LUXURY SHOE DESIGN
Shoes, symbols par excellence of feminine allure and sensuality, are one of the most important fashion accessories; over time, they have also become vitally important for men as well. Objects of desire and passion, shoes can celebrate and complement the look and personality of the person wearing them. However, creating fashion footwear requires technical and design skills, creativity, and a solid knowledge of fashion and market trends.
The Summer School Course in Luxury Shoe Design is designed to allow students to fully "immerse" themselves in the realities of shoe making and understand the dynamics and inner workings of this sector. During the course, students develop the basic skills for the technical development of the model, analyzing design techniques, shapes, silhouettes, and structure, with an in depth study of footwear history, trends, and materials.
