Description

Bag design is one of the fastest growing areas of fashion. On this bag design course we will show you what's involved in creatively and practically producing a range of bags (with coordinating purses or wallets). You'll also learn about fabric selection, current trends in surface decoration, range building and where to manufacture.

The course includes:

  • Trend research
  • Preparing design/mood boards
  • Developing design ideas
  • Creating customer profiles
  • Working drawings, spec sheets and material specifications

You will design a coordinated range of bags with spec sheets. This is a bag design course, and does not involve bag making.

Level:

Beginners. You should have an interest in the subject area and a desire to learn but no previous experience is required.
