With over 20 years experience in the industry I have worked in all areas of Men’s footwear from International fashion brands to high street retailers covering formal, casual, sports & comfort product areas.
As every project is different, I offer a bespoke design package tailored to suit you. From concept, last, sole design to upper options, colour ups & final sample. I can manage the project as much or as little as you like, so would suit both an established high street retailers looking for a fresh eye or a new brand with no previous experience in footwear.
I cover all aspects of footwear design from entry point basics to high end, casual, sports & formal products. From small designer collections to more traditional comfort products. I can offer a complete service from initial concept to final sample.
In addition to product design I can also help with research, trend analysis, branding & packaging concepts. Having worked extensively in all areas of Men’s footwear I have had the privilege to work & forge good relationships with some of the best factories in the world- be that in Europe, India, China or the Far East so can help with sourcing if required.
I am lucky enough to be associated with Tata Footwear India who manufacture a diverse range of high quality Men’s fashion & classic footwear. In addition to four Men’s manufacturing units, & large tannery in India there is also an Italian design studio with access to European leather, last & sole makers to ensure the design development process runs smoothly.
