How to Select a Handbag and Purse Design School
Colleges and universities in the U.S. typically don't offer degree programs in handbag and purse design alone. Schools may offer a bachelor's degree in fashion design or a bachelor's degree in fine arts, each of which may include a concentration in purse design.
Consider the following when looking for handbag and purse design schools:
- Students should consider schools whose handbag design classes provide the range of skills needed to develop a professional portfolio and obtain jobs.
- Schools should have a history of providing work experiences with employers that specialize in designing, producing and marketing handbags.
- Aspiring purse designers might also look for programs with business courses since many designers are self-employed as contractors and freelancers.
