Example of one collection the 3rd Step: The Upper Design

The final step of creating a shoe line is the upper design. On the above structure I have created two examples of upper design.

As I already said before, generally, a shoe line contains from 5 to 10 new upper models, on a new structure. Here, you see only 2 sketches with the color version.


This is one upper designed on the structure. A balck and white sketch.

The model has a series of decorative stitchings and a strap with a stud on the vamp.


This one is a new upper design on the same structure. The shoe line is being created.

The upper has a series of cuttings on the side that become decoration as the stitchings.


Here the same upper design is colored.

The color used in this version is dark brown with a brushed effect, the lining color should be in contrast like purple.


Here is the colored version of the second upper design.

The color version of this vamp is a darkbrown the leather should be kidskin and the model should have a brushed finishing. The color of the bow is in contrast and the stitchings are decorative.
