Course Handbag design is one of the most vibrant and exciting areas of the fashion industry, but it is also one of the least understood. Successful design has to marry vision and originality, with a whole raft of practical skills. My courses, Introduction To Handbag Design, and Advanced Handbag Design, are intended to help would-be designers and those already embarked on small scale production, to develop a clear understanding of the complex processes involved in bringing a brand successfully to market.

Introduction To Handbag Design

This course is designed to show you what’s involved, creatively and practically, in producing a range of bags (with coordinating purses or wallets).  On it you will learn about fabric selection, current trends in surface decoration, range building and where to manufacture.

You will start by looking at different trends and how to interpret them going forward. You’ll investigate advanced shapes, styles and construction and focus on matching these to the target customer and market. The course also involves working on your own design boards and completing your design process with a 3D bag mock-up.
