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.

The Chianti region is located just outside of Florence. It is an area that produces Chianti wines, olive oils, aged balsamic vinegars, and wild honey. There are several other beautiful areas to visit, near Florence, when students want to take a break from the busy city center.
