Footwear industry is largely divided into three segments i.e. manufacturing, designing and marketing. Designers handle the creative part of the job that is designing styles and patterns.



They are hired as technical designers who have formal training in shoe patter making, cutting, designing and sample preparation or as stylist designers.



They have to be aware of the international fashion trends and have the ability to conceptualize a sale-able product.



The retail sector holds a promising future for the professionals trained in this field. Footwear designers need to have a creative eye and a flair for color, texture and patterns.



They need to have knowledge of foot anatomy. They are expected to have exceptional good drawing ability and CAD skills.
