Each collection project requires a careful evaluation of aspects that have nothing to do with creativity, style and design, as we commonly understand it. Apparently.
Because Design is first and foremost a product project and a project that works and can evolve profitably over time, requires a deep knowledge of all the aspects that allow the creative idea you had, the collection you thought and designed, to become reality: first prototype, then samples and finally a fully realized, produced, sold collection. The crowning glory of your project.
Product development is planning a strategy that brings your collection project to life and success: it is analysis, calculation, selection and, yes, often also renunciation: materials, components, planning the right product mix and cost evaluation of every single segment must be carefully planned and implemented.
At the end of the Arsutoria School intensive course in Product Development & Costing you will have acquired knowledge on the development process of the collection, its steps, its needs, its criticalities and its costs. Through case studies of companies in the footwear manufacturing world, you will understand the development times and the flexibility required in the product choices and in the most economically adequate solutions, so that your collection has a chance of success.
