A small town girl from Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, Danielle Leger has always had big dreams. After graduating in Montreal at LaSalle College in Fashion Marketing, Danielle was ready for the next step to pursue her career dreams as a businesswoman and designer. With the intention of one day starting her own bag and accessories company, Danielle’s next step was to come to a place that is World renowned for its high quality craftsmanship and fashion sense. She found everything she was looking for at Accademia Riaci in Florence, Italy, enrolling in a one year program in Bag Making & Design. Danielle loves challenging herself in the creative arts and bag making, and is tremendously happy to be at this school to do so.

カナダのニューブランズウィック州フレデリクトン出身の小さな街の女の子、Danielle Legerには大きな夢がありました。モントリオールにあるラサール・カレッジでファッション・マーケティングを学んだ後、Danielleは彼女のビジネスウーマンとデザイナーとしてのキャリアと夢に向かって次のステップに進みます。いつの日か自分のバッグ・アクセサリー会社をスタートさせるため、Danielleの次のステップはその質の高い職人魂とファッションセンスで世界的に有名な場所に来る事でした。彼女はイタリア、フィレンツェのアカデミアリアチのカバン制作・デザインワンイヤーコースに求めていたもの全てを見つけました。Danielleは制作活動やバッグ制作で自身を試すことが好きなので、この学校でそれができる事が本当にハッピーです。

Bag Making 6-One Year Course 2017

Monday

Unfortunately, today I felt sick and did not attend school.

Tuesday

This morning in Fashion Design, I went into class and we all had a lovely discussion about Lineapelle and the Fashion industry! I then showed Veronica my designs, and she showed me how I can improve my drawing skills for next week. The main tip is always practice – “practice makes perfect!”

Wednesday

Today I spent all day working on my shoulder bag/clutch. After having glued, I stitched both zipper pieces together, creating a circle. Then after having glued the two sides with the pockets, I stitched those pieces together with the zipper piece.

Thursday

Today I was hand stitching all day! I finished my first small leather good from last week, and started the second bag we are all making. The second bag is a shoulder bag, so it is much larger and has a chain strap attached to it.

Friday

Today I spent all morning working independently on Bag Design, and all afternoon working independently on Bag Making! Later in the evening, I happily went to Trattoria 13 Gobbi, a wonderful restaurant in Florence with the best tomato sauce on rigatoni in the city!
