I was born in Brescia (Italy) in 1989. After graduating in Fashion Design at the IUAV University of Venice, I specialized in footwear at Politecnico Calzaturiero of Padua. I'm a careful observer of the reality that surrounds me and I have been drawing and creating with a curious mindset since I was a little girl.

To provide students with technical basic competences needed to work in the design an industrialization of shoe. At the end of the training the student will be able to design some shoes basic models variations drawing on paper and on last and developing models parts by hand. STYLISTIC DESIGN: techniques, colors application, graphic studies of components and accessories. PROFESSIONAL DESIGN: advanced techniques to technically draw variations to man/woman basic models on paper and on last, in order to acquire skills needed to build a mini-collection. BY HAND TECHNICAL PATTERN-MAKING: development of upper, lining and reinforcement moulds of the mini-collection models, technical documentation planning. PROCESS TECHNOLOGIES: analysis of production processes (cutting, binding, lasting, finishing) of a specific shoe model defined by the teacher. SECIALIZED COURSE about 2D/3D CAD Systems.
Goals: -knowledge of design, history and criticism in the fashion design sector; – knowledge of the techniques and expressive and design languages in fashion; – ability to recognise and interpret trends in contemporary fashion; – conceptual and design grounding developed in workshop activity that simulates professional experience combined with specific creative and design ability, from the invention of connections and solutions developed within application related activity and with an industrial basis; – acquisition of theoretical knowledge and familiarity with methodological, historical and critical tools that are used in relation to the relevant professional context and in relation to design activity, from the phase of conception to creation, execution, communication and consumption; – acquisition of basic theoretical IT knowledge and practice relating applied to the subjects covered by the programme.
