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.
I visited Museo Nazionale del Bargello this week. It’s a museum that history book always talk about and I am really glad I had visit here, saw all the beautiful painting and sculpture.
A pair of Goodyear hand-welted Derby boot. This pair was wax leather calf with vintage color brown. Taking off the last, then, I could do some makeup for this shoe.
The pair you just finished is for your boyfriend? Prof. Angelo was asking. This pair is for a friend of my boyfriend, I said. Then, when will you make one for your boyfriend? Angelo asked me jokingly. Next one! I was making, I said…(laugh together)
Another pair was done! Though It’s happy, but, when thinking about there are still lots of pair waiting for me to finish, I couldn’t relax myself…Okay, cheer up, keep fighting for next pair! See you next week.
