Fashion Footwear Courses

Hi everyone

I’m looking into doing a fashion footwear course and just wanted some advise.

The purpose of doing this is I would like to start my own ladies shoe label to either retail or wholesale in Australia.

I have no design background, just marketing but have had a passion for this since I was a kid.

I noticed there are alot of footwear design courses that include design, pattern making thru to the end product. I just want an understanding of design and the development process of making my own shoes.

Are these courses the way to go???

I’ve looked into these courses at the London School of Fashion, Italy and Australia. Would you recommend one over another?

Any help would be a massive help.

Thanks heaps.
