Background For the customized industry research of Seoul local industry specialization Project, Seoul Women`s University (the college) and Seongsu-Dong (the local industry) collaborated to strengthen the technical skills of handmade shoes for the advancement and development of new products. Despite many numbers of contractors and workers, handmade shoes area of Seongsu-dong is lacking design talents. With the advanced production technology of local industry, the infrastructure of the College of Art and Design leverages to develop a competitive handmade shoes that could grow together in the fashion industry. School research team has provided and developed surface designs with colors that reflect the current fashion trends for the production. In addition, medical consultation were proceeded as efforts to increase the added value to a new shoe brand, and various tests including antibacterial, odor, germ, and friction were also proceeded to meet the business purpose of the local economy vitalizations Methods Yeonhwamun, the reflection of Korean traditional pattern, was applied to handmade shoes, reflecting S/S 2016 trend color in consideration of fashion cycle and sales at the time of the production. Through specialized survey agency in demographical approach, we would like to research and analyze on satisfaction and preference of surface designs and shapes of shoes. Responses from men and women in age range from 20s to 50s who were commissioned by a professional survey organization, will enable us to specifically predict the future sales potential through the design prototype. Result According to the result of the surface design preferences on shoes survey, Design # 2 (see Table 1) received the highest response, which reflects the trend color of 2016, yet colors are still reliable and unique. Colors are also not affected by seasons, and at the same time patterns retain tradition. In addition, Slip-on #2 (See Table 3) coated with surface design #2 received the highest score among the preference and satisfaction survey, in which 54% of men favored, compare to 46% of women. In detail rating, 19% of women in 20s favored the design the most. In terms of shape of shoes, this slip-on shoes record the highest, compare to high -heels pumps, which the result reflecting the current fashion trends. Conclusion Through this research, we could expect further development and application of the textile design according to user`s preference and purpose by proposing aesthetic textile designs with a great depth of expression. In addition, this study is meant to be the cornerstone to contribute to the spread of handmade shoes industry, and further increase sales growth & workforce number (including design talents) of the local economy which is in poor condition at the moment. Through the analysis of surface pattern and footwear design research prior to the development of the finished product, we see the potential of continuation of this collaborative project with the school and the industry. In addition, in the following research, we expect to see additional complements on further product developments based on the result of preference and satisfaction research seen above, along with in-depth research including tests such as, color fastness, friction, anti-bacterial odor and germ, through professional medical consultation. Furthermore, we look forward to lay the cornerstone of design innovation of handmade shoes for the promotion of the local industry through the further research in the future.
