Okay, stop the bus! These shoes are screaming what one calls STATEMENT heels!
You knows those shoes that spice-up any “I’m having an un-inspired fashion day” outfit? Well Sophia Webster’s designs are those shoes.
They are dazzling and you’ll start to notice that celebs, online influencers and fashionistas are all over them.
Ms Webster debuted her first collection of quirky shoes just two years ago. Before going solo she graduated from the Royal College of Art in a specialised MA footwear course and has a BA degree from Cordwainers College before being snapped up as a design assistant to Nicolas Kirkwood (also well known for fantasy heels that turn heads).
This super-talented gal has not only won numerous awards for her designs but is applauded for creating modern, fun, sophisticated footwear that is both unique in its aesthetic as well as commercially viable.
She started by launching her collection in the summer of 2013 in a pop-up shop in Burlington Arcade in London and due to it’s success, she opened a second in Covent Garden which ran from December 2013 through to February 2014. From here it’s been upward and onward for the British born blonde whose latest SS15 collection, “Jungle is Massive” is wildly imaginative.
You only have to look at the shoes, a concoction of flowers, leopard print, neon and monochromatic colours, beads and whimsical cut-outs of leaves, angel wings, butterflies and flamingos, to desire a pair. There’s an acid-infused, 90’s underground rave happening on every shoe – with girl-warrior embellishments, Aztec patterns and African prints, neon colours with black glitter – it’s hard not to love the playful sexiness of each design.
See the whole collection online – it’ll be hard to hold yourself back!
