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.

In the Footwear Design Course, using a Light Table helps to speed up the process in completing one’s collection. When having to sketch multiple shoes of a similar design, we simply take a finished sketch, trace the outer sole on another piece of paper, and then from there we create a new style for the upper. And repeat.

Some design students prefer to alternate between sketching while sitting and standing. Sometimes the change can prompt one’s creative juices to flow!

After touring the Gucci Museum of Fashion, Professor Andrea, along with students John and Christine, enjoy a lovely Aperitivo right outside the Museum located at Piazza Signoria. It was fun getting to know one other outside of a classroom atmosphere.
