Three questions to Clara Minasi, a young designer and entrepreneur, a former student of Istituto Modartech.

The success of a Fashion School is to be assessed in close relationship with the world of work. One of the flagships of the training proposal is the course dedicated to the footwear design and planning. We asked three questions to Clara Minasi, a young designer and entrepreneur, a former student of Istituto Modartech.

1. Who are you and what do you do now?

My name is Clara Minasi, class 1984.

Always a scholar and passionate about art and style, I live and work over the years in Rome, Civitanova Marche and Milan.

Today, after some significant professional experiences as a shoe designer, I direct the research, development and production in the collections of the women’s footwear brand with fabbricazione artigianale CMM.

Brands that I personally created last year, in 2012.

2. What led you to Modartech and why did you choose it?

Modartech was the end result of a careful research process.

When I decided to associate my university training in “Fashion and Costume Sciences” with a specialist and professionalizing path in Shoe Design, Istituto Modartech was a more than appropriate choice.

For the proven preparation of the teachers, for the seriousness with which the entire didactic path took place, for the teachings and the precious advice received.

3. What did Modartech leave you? What are the values that he has transmitted to you that have helped you most in the work?

Istituto Modartech has increased and perfected multiple aspects of my figure as a designer. From purely stylistic to modeling. The didactic path allowed me to recognize, for example, the nature of the leathers, to associate the best shapes to the models, to use 2D and 3D prototyping tools.

It also contributed to my human and professional growth by providing me with useful suggestions that make my professionalism more responsible and aware today.
