This paper summarizes the development and creation process of the author’s Suprematism-inspired mini-collection of shoes and fashion accessories. During the design process, the focus was on creating conceptual solutions from several components in order to reduce the consumption of materials and the possibility of applying the “upcycling” method, i.e. the creative use of leather production scraps in the realization of the model. The experimental part of the work describes the development of prototypes of women’s sneakers, boots and backpacks from conceptual solutions, project drawings and the selection of materials for production to model making and the production of templates. Through the use of digital tools, realistic representations of the future models were created. From all these models, the most attractive and suitable for the production of prototypes were selected. As a result, the author’s mini-collection of boots, sneakers and backpacks is presented, focusing on design, functionality and quality, as well as the possibility of a longer product life and use according to the guidelines of sustainable fashion.
