There are three young designers to keep an eye on, that create fun and colorful shoes.
Sophia Webster debuted her collection for SS13 after working as design assistant to Nicholas Kirkwood. She is a graduate of the specialised MA footwear course at the Royal College of Art and the BA degree at the renowned Cordwainers College.Sophia Webster was awarded the Conde Nast Footwear Emerging Designer of the Year award for 2012 and was given the prestigious New Gen Award for all of her first three seasons by the British Fashion Council. Sophia was awarded the Mayor of London and British Fashion Council’s Fashion Forward prize for AW14 and SS15.The SS14 collection saw the launch of her iconic Butterfly collection, including the Chiara sandals, a style that has since evolved into the Angel Wing design, most notably the Evangeline heels. Her shoe collections have expanded to include a wide range of styles, from flats to espadrilles, and include the classic Coco Pump showcasing the Flamingo detail at the back of the heel, an image now synonymous with the brand.
Camilla Elphick has worked under designers including Nicholas Kirkwood, Sophia Webster, Donna Karan, Paul Andrew and Charlotte Olympia. She attended Parsons, New York and Cordwainers in London, and her graduate shoe collection, ‘So Bad It’s Good’ gained widespread attention from fashion editors with the ‘Pez’ shoe, prompting her to launch her eponymous label for SS15.Handmade in Italy, Camilla’s designs are defined by a feminine yet playful aesthetic and focus on premium, ethically sourced materials and bespoke prints. Her signature silhouette features a sexy curve below the ankle, designed to elongate the leg. It was Camilla’s long-standing passion for shoes and firm belief that good shoes make a lasting first impression that prompted her to launch her namesake label.
