Week1 : Bag design course
The class started with the introduction of the course by our teacher Prof. Veronica.
She interviewed each student about their background and their goal for the course. I have seen that there are many students from all around the world attending this class.
I have introduced myself that I have worked as a bag designer before in Thailand but I would like to learn the effective design process and work more creatively. She had me take a look in some trend books and see if I find anything interesting as an inspiration for my collection as a starting point. We discussed what is my main theme and who is my main target customer group. Imagine what is her life style and her routine so I can have an idea what kind of bag would suit her life style.
Today we continued developing concept. I presented my mood board to Prof.Veronica.
She suggested how to clarify my concept and to make a personality for my collection.
We discussed about materials or techniques that I would like to use.
Basic lesson class : Storia dell’arte del Rinascimento
Today I attended art history class by Prof. Barbara. She introduced us the beginning of Renaissance art in Florence in 15th century. How The Medici dynasty began building things around Florence. She showed some works by famous artists from that era like Brunelleschi for Architecture / Donatello for Sculpture / Masaccio for painting
Where we can see their work in Florence or some place in Italy.
Today I showed Prof. Veronica the techniques and form I was interested to use for my bag collection. She gave me some advised how to scope the idea as a main theme and where to find more references. I have concluded the functionality to my bag collection. Prof. Veronica suggested me to start sketching bag design.
