After briefly studying Fashion Design at the Arts Institute in Miami, Christine came to Florence to study shoe design/making which was her real passion. At Accademia Riaci, she began her Shoe Design course with Professor Andrea Roth, a one-time designer for the Ferragamo shoe brand. In the design course, Christine was taught all of the design elements for creating beautiful footwear. She also learned how to balance creativity with technical skills. Upon completion of the design course, she was excited to move on to Shoe Making which is taught by Mr. Angelo.

Learning how to properly color our designs. We had to learn first how to shade with color pencils. There are several ways to shade one’s work. We were taught all ways but we chose the one that we liked best.

These two photos give a little glimpse of the process of formulating, adding color, shading, and texturing of an image. We were, also, taught to keep light and shadow in mind.
