Designer Spotlight: Sophia Webster

Over the weekend, Fiona, Jenn and I headed on over to the Brooklyn Museum to see the exhibit - Killer Heels: The Art of the High Heeled Shoe. It was a fabulous exhibit showcasing "the high- heeled shoe's rich and varied history and its enduring place in our popular imagination." It got me thinking about all of my favorite shoes and the designers who create true pieces of art for our feet. Can you name a few? I've got one in mind who fits the bill perfectly.

I've decided to create a new series, which will introduce my readers to emerging designers that I follow and their specialties in the industry. Meet Sophia Webster, world-renowned British shoe designer. She studied at the Royal College of Art and Cordwainers. Before creating her own designs, she worked as a design assistant to the infamous Nicholas Kirkwood. She is known for single soles, feminine lines and strong silhouettes. In addition, she's won a bunch of prestigious awards, and designed two awesome shoe lines with J.Crew. Check out her Holiday collection here.

I think that her shoes are truly magical and stunning pieces of art. They will cost you a few $$$, but it is totally worth the investment because your feet will be on display. Check out some of my favorite designs and then head on over to her website to see more.
