Shoes are an important and distinctive element of anyone's wardrobe and covetable objects of desire for many women and men. Join this workshop to learn about the process of designing and making designer shoes in a fascinating talk with Italian footwear designer Alfredo Casadei.
Alfredo is currently Senior Womens shoe Designer at Jimmy Choo and is a fashion design graduate of Rome’s Istituto Europeo di Design. His creativity has been nurtured and developed at some of the world’s most iconic fashion labels- Valentino where he designed bags and leather accessories, Versace & Burberry where he honed his skills and finally Jimmy Choo.
The day commences with a talk about Alfredo's footwear career and his influences from the world of art, film and fashion. You will have the chance to ask him questions about the industry, his process and the designers with whom he has worked. The rest of the morning will be spent learning the fundamentals of footwear from Fashion Designer Esmée Ertekin. You will learn about specialised leathers and components such as heels and soles and learn how to produce a spec. drawing using technical pencils with relevant fashion vocabulary. There will be leathers and soles available for you to see and handle.
In the afternoon there will be a live model wearing a range of vintage footwear. You will illustrate footwear in relation to the body while developing your understanding of footwear design. There will be a mixture of short and long poses and a selection of materials will be provided to produce experimental drawings. Inspiration will be taken from modern and contemporary footwear photographers and illustrators.
