Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Course: Shoe Making
Program: Atelier Course
Period: Sep. 4, 2017 – Apr. 27, 2018
After working in Taiwanese footwear industry for three and a half years, she came to Firenze to study shoes making course, the city which is famous for leather art and shoes.
Although she already has basic aesthetics and sketching technique background from university (B.A.), yet she hopes to extend her shoe-making skills here in Riaci. She believes designer can deliver their thoughts through their works, hoping to keep motivate people with her designs.
Christmas holiday are coming in two weeks! I think I need to process more for my shoes. I decided to suspend my loafer and start making new pattern. Yushih also started a new pattern in this week, she wants to make a riding boots. Even I was so excited for it!
When the model was confirmed, then it’s time to make components. The pattern making for derby boots is similar from derby shoes but with more rotations, which means it needs the basic knowledge for derby shoes.
Let’s see how it looks when it comes to testing model. In this time, I spent more times for C12 testing, in order to make it more accurate. Um…It seems that, again, I have create another complicated design…(haha).
Photo shot when the first prototype was finished. Because I cut too much in some part, so, it contributed to the wrong lasting. The pattern should be corrected and made a new prototype to catch.
