I am a London-based women's footwear designer recently graduated from the BA in Cordwainers Footwear Design at London College of Fashion. I love to explore story-telling and innovation through design whilst maintaining a sense of commerciality. My style as a designer is lush, refined, feminine and sculptural with unexpected details. I find my inspiration from many sources including the visual richness of the city I live in - its architecture, people, parks, galleries, happenings - philosophy, nature and art. I find footwear design a particularly invigorating task as it is so dependent on wearability and it is always a challenge to balance beauty, comfort and function.
