The fashion and shoe designs of part-time education in Sint-Niklaas, Fashion Design department: led by Ellen Monstrey and assisted by Maureen Declercq and Chris Franssen and Shoe Design by Anne Poesen & Patrick Cremers has manifested itself for many years as a professional and very inspiring department looking far beyond the borders of Sint-Niklaas. What makes this program so special is that it is a part-time education program. The students combine this training with other part-time studies or with their full time or part time jobs. Motivation and enthusiasm is the driving force. For some people it means finally realizing their childhood dream. It requires huge commitment and only who is passionate enough gets to the finish line. Because the program sets its goals very, academic, high.
Focus on both fashion and shoe design on the design, structure, craft, form study , chart and study of historical and ethnic costumes. The programs of both directions are similar and personal vision and authenticity are encouraged from the first year.
The Shoe Design department was created out of passion for the craft. For shoe design there are 30 candidates. The show is the culmination of an academic year and gives students from the first year on a platform to show their work, their vision and creativity. That every year 1.200 people, not just family and insiders, come to visit this show is the best form of appreciation for this department and it’s students. So make sure you will also join this dazzling, exciting, inspiring show!
