The Master in Bag Design guarantees a well-rounded education in the area of leather goods, merging a creative approach with hands-on craftsmanship.
Both creative and practical, this course will provide an in-depth study of production techniques and materials, merchandising strategy and collection planning – all to form the accessory designers of the future (leather goods and small leather goods) with a strong and forward-thinking creative direction.
Today more than ever the accessory has gone beyond its complementary function to become a true object of desire, with the power of driving and even determining a brand’s success. Quality, craftsmanship and design form the identity of this manufacturing sector, requiring highly specialized profiles capable of reinterpreting and translating the know-how and heritage of Made in Italy into new global scenarios.
The course includes master classes, workshops and a brand-specific project in collaboration with the fashion house, as well as visits to sites and production plants in the Florentine area. Lectures will be held by industry professionals with a practical and in-depth knowledge of the sector and will be integrated with guest lectures by international figures. During the 9 months, students will develop a collection project to be presented as both the Mid-term (capsule collection) and Final Project (main collection), valid as a personal portfolio.
