A big Hello and a bigger Welcome to my blog and eventually to my life!!!
After a lot and when saying a lot I mean A LOT of hard work and research, we finally come out with my first shoe collection! But first things first! Who am I and What do I do here? Let’s get started! 😉
I am Kate, I am a Greek Footwear Designer living in London. I’ve been raised by a shoemaker family, so that is where my passion for shoes started. Having a throwback I find myself getting so seriously moved by the smell and feel of real, genuine leather. Always a lover of quality shoes, paying attention to the detail. Being in this industry for several years I decided to make my first attempt of designing my very own shoe collection and launch it this winter.
I came to the realization that women’s shoes should be really demanding. What I mean is that we constantly keep on finding really fashionable shoes, but most of the times really uncomfortable.. This is the moment when I took my pencils and designed my first shoe for this Winter. I would describe them as ‘casual chic’, but since I personally hate labels, I’ll let you categorize them!
Travelling to Greece and Italy, to pick all the materials and trims myself for each design, this first collection is based on 100% Leather, Suede and Velvet. My initiate goal is women to wear the shoes and the first word that comes to their mouth is ‘Comfort!”. I tried to combine the word Comfort with high heels! ( I know it’s onerous, but I’m that daredevil!) All of them are designed with anatomic-breathable bottoms. How can they be ‘breathable?’ So, there is a new insulating material that we use for all of our bottoms, which is actually foamy, and it allows feet to breath while keeping them warm. You will actually get the feeling of having a tiny ‘pillow’ on your instep.
Most important is to have a shoe which can be easily worn from day to night and could be combined with every outfit.
Ok.. Now I’ve gone too far! I just want to thank you for joining and state that I will be really glad to leave me your messages, thoughts and suggestions. I would love to communicate with you!
Till next time, take care and ..
Walk Your Way…
