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.
Hi, another moccasin week! In this week, I’ve done with my upper and finally started lasting. As you see in the picture, this is a new method for edge finishing, which is called “Border”. The method needed to concentrate very well while stitching. For the first time making “Border”, it took me a while to adapt it. In conclusion, it looks NICE!
Okay, Pre-lasting was finished. In this time, I decided to challenge a new construction named- Idea. As you see, this lasting method is so different from the others.
I am very happy I have finished this pair. Thanks for our assistant – Masa helping me with shoe laces. Now, it looks gorgeous! This is the end of weekly report, see you next week~
