Design and handbag collection- a complete technical guide to professionally plan, design and communicate your project.



Overview of what you will learn:

Initially you will learn what to research, understand and look out for before starting to design your collection.
Then you will learn about creating a moodboard, understanding the importance of handbag construction, types of finishing and decorative-functional details, considerations for the crucial aspect of choosing materials and fittings, how to design the different technical views of a handbag, how to create 3D drawings, how to smoothly communicate technical information with a manufacturer and much more.

This course allows you to explore your creative side, develop an understanding of essential skills in accessory design and enables you to convert your ideas into reality.

Why this is not the usual 'design your collection' tuition:

This 3 hour long course is designed by a team of designers, prototype makers and handbags manufacturers.
It is both a theoretical and practical course which will teach you what the industry requires from designers in order to be able to understand and correctly translate their ideas into finished products.
This course is not about creating pretty drawings, but is focused on giving you an overview on the complexity and extensiveness of the process that designing a collection of handbags requires.
The course will help you in understanding what you need to search, study, look out for, find out and decide before and during designing your styles, enabling you to avoid a long, expensive and sometimes frustrating process when it is time to prototype and manufacture your collection.

Why we created this type of tuition:

After years of experience in designing and developing collections for our customers, we realised that there was a substantial lack of clear information available about what designing a collection of handbags and fashion accessories requires and how it is achieved.
We created this course with the aim of helping the new generation of designers, as well as designers which are still struggling, in developing their ideas and empower them to clearly and correctly communicate them to whoever is going to prototype their collection.
We essentially have created this tuition based on the needs and problems of our customers, hoping to promote and facilitate creatives in the realisation of their projects.

Who is this course for:

This course is designed for aspiring designers seeking professional advice from industry experts, designers at the start of their career in need of guidelines to optimise their design process or for those who are simply looking to develop their drawing techniques for their own enjoyment.
