Nationality: South-African
Course: Shoe Making
Program: One-Year Atelier Course
Period: Sept 5, 2016-April 25, 2017


After Studying a BA degree in Fashion Design in South Africa, Lara decided that she would love to study further and focus on a specific direction in the fashion industry. During her studies, she followed an internship at a company where she was taught how to make and design handbags out of leather and exotic leather skins.

She knew instantly that she would love to study further and learn more about shoes and decided to come to Firenze, Italy, the most famous city to learn more of leather art and shoes! She found Accademia Riaci and knew that the shoe making course that they had to offer was exactly was she was looking for.

Here she wishes to learn the highest level of shoe making techniques and to be able to follow her dream to become a designer with the knowledge of not only fashion, but also the art of shoe and handbag design.

南アフリカでファッションデザインの文学士号を取得後、ファッション業界で目指す方向を定めるためにもっと学びを深めたいと思いました。企業インターンを経験した際には、外国製の皮革を使用したカバン制作とデザインを学びました。

すぐに靴制作を学びたいと思うようになり、靴制作や革工芸を学べる世界で最も有名な都市・フィレンツェ行きを決意。検討の結果、自分が探し求めていた内容の靴制作コースを提供するアカデミアリアチへの入学を決めました。

ここで最高レベルの靴制作技術を身につけ、ファッションのみならず靴やカバンの知識も兼ね備えたデザイナーになることが夢です。

Shoe Making 7-One Year Course 2016

After a wonderful holiday spent in Marbella, Spain, for a week for our autumn break, we flew to Rome on the way back from Spain and experienced the magnificent Rome for three days from Monday to Wednesday.
We had an unexpected surprise when we realized that the Vatican City will be closed on the Tuesday, as it was a national holiday, and decided to extend our stay with one more day to be able to visit the Vatican City.

On Thursday I was back in class well rested out and ready to work on my own pair of Oxford shoes. I completed the pattern and will start with the mock up for the upper next week.

I was over the moon when I finally got to see my boyfriend again after two months. We visited some good friends in Marbella, Spain, and travelled to a beautiful small town called Ronda, about 1,5hour drive outside Marbella.

We also travelled to Malaga, Spain, close to Marbella were we walked through the stunning historical town center, the Alcazaba Roman theatre and last but not least, the Picasso museum.

Rome was absolutely fantastic. We hired bicycles and explored almost every single sight that we could in the time that we spent there. The weather was perfect and sunny and we stayed at a backpackers right in the center of town.

The ruins in Rome from the incredible view from the top of the Palentine hill. It is such an unbelievable feeling to walk through the ruins and to think how people walked and lived here from so many years back.

The Coloseum is a must see of course. The line to enter will always be crazy long, but it is definitely worth going inside and learning about the history and sad happenings that took place in the Coloseum.

After visiting the Vatican museums and mind-blowing Saint Peter’s basilica we also walked all the way up to the chapel where you have spectacular views of the whole of Rome.

Back in Florence I finally went to visit the Uffizi gallery. It was really great to finally see all the spectacular pieces of art that I have heard so much about.

I also finally got to visit the Pitti palace where my favorite part was of course the costume museum where I spent almost a whole hour!
