I am not sure whether or not I have mentioned here that my burning ambition for many years was (and still is) to be a shoe designer. Just now I want to be lots of other things too. Whenever I bump into someone I’ve not seen for years they first thing they will without fail ask is about the shoe design.
Back in 1994 I was enrolled and ready to go to college in Melbourne, but the week before the course was to start they shut it down. A few years later I found Camper and decided I didn’t need to design shoes. Not yet anyway. I still harbour ambitions to go to Cordwainers in London – but for now I’m going to be making more of these:
For people who would like to be notified when the shoes go into the shop please click here to let me know. Thanks :)
I’ve had such a good week. I think it’s the first week where I have really felt like I’m back in the swing of work. There are projects aplenty and I am really enjoying all of them. Currently I’m designing an identity for Louise of GiGi – and it’s great because I can just design exactly what I love and it’s perfect for her. Yay!
This morning I went to see Lisani – an old school friend – who is a textile and wallpaper designer. So it’s really cool to be working with her too. She lives very close to where I grew up so Astrid and I had a little walk along the beach at lunchtime.
Then back to town to buy some natural linen from Martha’s for Astrid’s Christmas stocking and lots and lots of elastic for baby shoes.
