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.
This week passed in the blink of an eye. Before we all knew it the week was over! On Thursday was Birthday and the class held a wonderful surprise party for me with a beautiful cake (made by Joanne of course), champagne, sushi and bubble tea. It was so special. For the evening we had cocktails at a secret bar in Florence and then had a dinner party with EVERYONE at Gesto. It was such a great day.
On the Wednesday I also did a fun costume shoot for a costume and events company here in Florence. I was the scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz. It was lots and lots of fun.
Other that all the distractions during the week I managed to complete the Blake stitching on my brother’s shoes.
Even though the process can be quite tricky, especially once you get to the toe of the shoe, I managed to finish mine very quickly. I think it is probably because I have very small hands and the shoe that I am working on is a size 43.
At Accademia Riaci, we are recruiting Course Reporters from our students. The students who are chosen to become Course Reporters are given 10 % of the tuition as their scholarship fee.
The Reporters who have submitted excellent reports will have his or her profile posted on our school website for the next 5 years as an alumnae and will be able to connect with their business chancesafter their graduation.
