BAG AND ACCESSORY DESIGN COURSE: WHAT IS THIS COURSE ABOUT?
This fashion design course for beginners and intermediates is a group class aimed to support aspiring designers or designers in need of guidance in the realisation of a viable and realistic collection of bags and/or accessories.
WHY THIS IS NOT THE USUAL ‘ACCESSORY DESIGN’ COURSE
This course is designed by a team of designers, prototype makers and handbag manufacturers.
It is both a theoretical and practical course which will teach you what the industry requires from designers in order to be able to understand and correctly translate their ideas into finished products.
This course is focused on giving you an overview on the complexity and extensiveness of the process that designing a collection of handbags requires.
WHY WE CREATED A FASHION DESIGN COURSE
After years of experience in designing and developing collections for our customers, we realised that there was a substantial lack of clear information available about what designing a collection of handbags and fashion accessories truly requires and how it is achieved.
We created this course with the aim of helping the new generation of designers, as well as designers which are still struggling, in developing their ideas and empower them to clearly and correctly communicate them to whoever is going to prototype their collection.
We essentially have created this tuition based on the needs and problems of our customers, hoping to promote and facilitate creatives in the realisation of their projects.
WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
This course is designed for aspiring designers and professionals seeking expert advice from the industry. It caters to those in need of guidance to optimise their design process or understand the nuances of working as a fashion accessory designer.
No previous experience is required.
