If you are responsible for footwear for your store or e-commerce outlet, then this course is dedicated to you:

We feel that actually getting your hands on the materials  and understanding the design and making processes will  help you improve your footwear buying decisions.

The course will help you understand the language and terminology used in footwear design and  manufacture. It will  enable you to communicate and negotiate with suppliers from a position of confidence while also helping you develop your own "good shoe/bad shoe" antenna and keep you from making expensive buying mistakes.  The course includes hands on demonstrations explaining the different constructions, materials and processes used in modern footwear manufacturing together with tips, basic foot anatomy, trends analysis and advice and guidance  for successful footwear buying.

This course will be particularly suitable for:

  • Fashion buyers - senior and junior
  • Store merchandisers

  • Retail trainers, lecturers & students
