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.

Professor Andrea takes the time to carefully examine each student’s work during the sketching process. If all looks good, she allows them to move forward to the coloring and shading phase.

Students make rough sketches of their idea onto paper first. Once they finalize their design, they re-sketch a clean copy in order to color/shade.
