Student Stories
  • It was a unique experience! Roel is one of the best in the shoe and sewing technique. It was my second masters degree and I must say that it was really helpful to integrate some of Roel his techniques with the Italian ones. I’ve met fantastic designers, it was a very family school, there was a lot of care on all the processes! I’ll be back with Ecrew Project! See you soon Holland!
