whcih is the right way to go

I would like to pursue shoe designing , branding , marketing and sales because I absolutely adore shoes and i have about 210 pairs at the moment. I have a genuine interest in it but i dont have a design background. I have a psychology and HR background. I have done some research on footware design but almost all the schools i looked at , DMU being my first choice want a design background.

How do i go about this? I am confused. I want to start applying to schools in order to being Jan 2009.

PLEASE HELP.
thanks
