This is an exclusive opportunity to be taught by the tutor of Prof. Jimmy choo. Chris Hill will be taking the studio sessions at JCA Mayfair on site. The course is for entrepreneurs and designers wishing to enter the fashion footwear industry. Chris Hill, “Throughout my career I have designed and developed footwear for all market levels in the fashion footwear industry. I have worked in factories worldwide and have first-hand experience of manufacturing. The relationship between design and technology has always fascinated me and this has been the basis for much of my academic research. For my MA dissertation, I explored the many complex factors that led to the demise of the British footwear industry post WW2. In my academic career, many of my students have gone on to become successful designers and include Jimmy Choo, Emma Hope, Patrick Cox, Victoria Pratt (Red or Dead), Joachim Sedelmeier (Paul Smith) and Nick Fowler (Dior)”Meet the mentors
*Please note: Research and design work will be undertaken outside class hours. Please be prepared for a level of commitment outside of studio sessions.
By the end of the course, you should understand the structure of the footwear fashion industry and the roles within that industry. You will have explored the production of footwear from concept to consumer, will have had the opportunity to consider your target market and produce a small capsule range for your brand.
