The footwear sector is one of the segments in fashion with the greatest growth in the future. In this industry, the technical and creative capacity of the designer to understand the needs of the market and/or the own brand helps to solve the problems that may arise.
The Postgraduate in Footwear Design proposes a projectual design methodology that provides real and effective solutions to the needs of the sector. The program offers the students an integral vision of the industry and the design stages of a footwear collection: inspiration, ideation, implementation and communication, whether it is a personal project or a company assignment. The knowledge and practice acquired can be applied to both mass-market brands and independent or own firms.
Sustainability and innovation in materials and production processes or technologies as tools capable of adding value to the brand and the product will be dealt with in a transversal way, in order to be integrated according to the objectives of a given project and market. In addition, the students will know the trends that will mark the evolution of the fashion sector in the very near future.
To obtain the Master's Degree in Design of Footwear, Bags and Leather Goods Collections, the students must also take the Postgraduate in Design and Construction of Bags and Small Leather Goods.
