Sophia Webster Spring Summer 2013 Shoe Collection
Sophia Webster is the rising star in the shoe fashion industry. This name has been heard about for the last couple months, but Webster’s footwear brand got the real recognition once it received the approval from the key clothing retailers: Dover Street Market, Harvey Nichols and net-a-porter.com. Moreover, the previous month Chloe Moretz picked her shoes for the red carpet appearance.
Webster commented on her creations:
The distinctive features of Webster’s footwear are the bright poppy hues, stripes, bows, ruffles and of course bold balls instead of the ordinary heels. The trip to Brazil was the main serve of inspiration while creating this spring summer 2013 collection.
“Everyone paints their houses in mad bright pastels which inspired the colour palette. I spent some time in Rio between factory visits and really loved it there. Even in the parts with the most extreme poverty the people and the landscape is so lively and colourful and I wanted to reflect that in the collection.”
“The thing I admire the most about any designer is the way they draw. I think that because my first love was always art, the sketching process is what I find most enjoyable and interesting. I really admire Manolo Blahnik and Edmundo Castillo – they are two shoe designers whose sketches I feel really tell a story and give the shoe a personality through the way they draw.”
