We had the opportunity to work to the incredible Sarah Angold to help her design and develop a sculptural concept shoe for United Nude.
Here is our design journey from concept to final piece showcased at London Fashion SS16.
We started off by creating paper models around out shoe in the Anisha Parmar London Studio, as well as doing wood bending test to see how this would translate into material.
The wood shoe structure was handmade with a special wood that is bent using dry heat, this was then spray painted to fade into the wood grain and initially showcased the the 're-inventing shoes' exhibition at the United Nude London flagship store.
Jewellery pieces: Neck piece and earrings made in the the style of the shoe: this image with Sarah Angold and our Founder Anisha Parmar was taken at London Fashion week where both the jewellery pieces and shoe were displayed.
The neck piece was featured in Vogue Italia Online
A great collaboration that we learnt a lot from and were able to put our AP London Studio
