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.

Students in the design class spent 2 weeks learning how to draw proportions and angles properly. Above is my own sketch of an ankle boot that I learned how to draw with an easy 4-step guide.

This sketch is made by our design professor. Students spent 2-3 weeks perfecting their own skills, under her watchful eye.

More 3/4 angle and proportion sketching which, for some students, can be challenging. But with proper direction and practice, students can become skillful illustrators.
