Accessories continue to be one of the fastest growing areas of fashion, with handbags leading the way. If you are thinking about creating your own handbag collection, then this course is for you.
We'll show you what's involved in creatively and practically producing a range of bags (with coordinating purses or wallets).
You will start with researching, and understanding the market, before exploring fabric selection, current trends in surface decoration, range building and where to manufacture your collection.
You will spend time designing a coordinated range of bags, with the guidance of the tutor. This is a design course, and does not involve bag making although if time permits you will be able to make a card mock-up of one of your designs.
The course includes:
- Trend research
- Preparing design/mood boards
- Developing design ideas
- Creating customer profiles
- Communicating your designs to manufacturers
- Range planning
Beginners. You should have an interest in the subject area and a desire to learn but no previous experience is required.
You will receive a 'Certificate of Short Course Attendance' from London College of Fashion.
