The Fashion Footwear Association of New York (FFANY) and Arsutoria School in Milan have announced the winners and finalists of the 2016 Joseph C. Moore Footwear Scholarship, created in honor of FFANY’s former president and CEO.
Chelsea Fu, a graduating senior in accessories design at Parsons School for Design, was selected as the scholarship winner out of seven finalists. The scholarship will provide her with the opportunity to receive advanced training in footwear design at a 13-week shoe-pattern making and prototyping course in Milan.
Alice Oggionni, a student at the Savannah College of Art & Design, was awarded second place. Isabella Bowie, also a student at Parsons, was awarded third place. Both will receive the opportunity to attend the Arsutoria five-day intensive course on footwear fundamentals and the “Art of Traditional Shoemaking,” to be held in New York. In addition, all three will receive the Arsutoria E-learning course.
Arsutoria school, an international institute of footwear and leather goods design, created the scholarship in 2015 to honor Moore, its friend and longtime advocate.
