Shoes Design course – fashion school in Rome

The goal of the Shoe Design short course is to train an expert footwear designer, capable of designing any type of shoe: elegant, casual, sporty. The course starts with the study of the basics of anatomy, with particular attention to the foot, and the study of drawing and coloring techniques, before moving on to the analysis of lines, shapes and colors and the design of a footwear collection.
This being a short course, it will not be possible to cover all the subjects in depth: depending on the student’s experience, the teacher will design the most suitable program.
