Accessory Design

The studies in the Accessory Design speciality are comprised of two fields of activity – accessory design and traditional crafts – that use different materials and techniques. The accessory projects deal with the design of bags and footwear, as well as gloves and headwear. The students participate in competitions, cooperate with businesses, and develop both their individual and teamwork skills within the framework of the various specializations.

  • The aim of the Accessory Design is to provide a modern, high-quality and internationally recognized education and, at the same time, to preserve traditional specialized knowhow.
  • We respect the study process and offer a flexible and need-based curriculum, which will develop and take into account the students’ creativity, personality and individual preferences and wishes.
  • The combination of modern and traditional studies makes the Accessory Design speciality unique in the world, and provides broad-based knowledge about leather as a material, as well as the various fields of activity related to it.
