I forgot to mention these things, refferals from person i know.

http://www.arteschool.com/english/design2_uk.htm - a friend of mines just finished learning shoe/handbags from this school, mostly sketching, process, etc. so i wanted to add to the list. she said nothing but good things.

http://imb.it/ - the same friend said she spent some months at this school learning sketching of fashion, shoes, and handbags. again nothing but good words.

wow, very interesting sites. Cordwainers actually teaches you mainly pattern cutting, clicking and closing, and making... very hands on and technical. which is great. but i feel we lack some sketching techniques, more fashion and drawing oriented. these courses might be ideal.
thank you Oria

i agree about cordwainers, illustration is not a strong point that i saw there when it came to footwear, but it didn't bother me so much since i knew how to sketch/draw already. i was looking more for the technical end since parsons couldn't actually show hands on creation of all shoes. but i still love professor howard davis, he's like a footwear library, he tried to teach despite the lack of equipment to do closed shoes, etc.

Hi, I have responded to your PM, sorry for the delay as I have been under so much work.

Also just so you can get different opinions. Lady Muck, Soraya, Nay-K, and Emery are all in the shoe business as well.

elegant patty i forget to say i'm glad you liked the resources. i think we need more people in footwear/shoe design. if you are thinking about it, know it's a very interesting and rewarding career. it is not as glamorous as say fashion design, and most people could care less but it's just amazing if you love shoes and details.
