Forget Cinderella. Sophia Webster’s shoes are already a cult favorite for those who dare to dream. Her angel winged shoes look like someone robbed Hermes of his prized footwear and made them sexy. Her collection only launched in 2013, but it has already made fans of celebrities like Scarlett Johansson and Carey Mulligan.
I saw these shoes in the Starworks PR showroom and they immediately pulled me in. The shapes and color lines are dazzling. They have a quirky, whimsical quality, but they are exquisitely produced as great British design always seems to be. Besides “shoe designer” Sophia Webster also lists herself as “Flamingo enthusiast” on her social media profiles. She loves unicorns, even posting a care guide on Facebook.
She was a former protégée of shoe legend Nicholas Kirkwood before breaking out with her own collection with a bang. She has already won numerous British Fashion Council awards in her first year. She caught the eye of J. Crew creative director Jenna Lyons and landed a collaboration this season.
Sophia Webster is quickly becoming the IT-shoe designer that the stylish set will covet. No one will be foolish enough to leave one of these behind at the ball.
