More details

Bags are the iconic fashion statement of the decade, with waiting lists for the most prestigious designs at luxury stores worldwide. Delve into the world of designer bags with Leather Product Designer & Developer Amy Harley. Hear about her experiences at the famous design houses of Lulu Guinness (current), Asprey, Burberry and Alexander McQueen. Hear about her production of men and women's bags, luggage and leather goods in Italy, working with the best leather artisans.
Amy’s presentation will cover how to research the most up-to-date leathers and materials, information on international trade fairs and how she keeps her practice current with contemporary trends, techniques and advances in product technology.
The second part of the session will involve being shown how to produce initial bag sketches by studying vintage bags- analysing the stitching, metal hardware and leathers. There will be leathers available for you to see and handle. The afternoon session will involve a live model sporting leather bags to enable you to illustrate accessories in relation to the body. There will be a variety of poses and all materials will be provided, including resources for producing collage-inspired illustrations. Inspiration will be taken from modern and contemporary fashion photographers and illustrators. You will leave the workshop with a range of fashion illustrations focusing on bags and accessories to add to your portfolio or to take home and admire!
