I found her shoes by chance while I was browsing the web for new shoe designs trying to see how the land lies. So, she is only 25, but her design are already a hit! Unfortunately, not yet for sale! L
There we go with the info from her Facebook page:
Victoria Spruce is London based footwear designer who has recently graduated with an MA in Womenswear Footwear from Royal College of Art (2011), and has previously achieved a 1st Class BA(Hons) in Footwear Design at Cordwainers, London College of Fashion (2008).
Victoria has always been inspired by the lines, shapes and silhouettes found in architecture, sculpture and structure, which is clearly visible throughout her footwear collections, emphasised by her use of hard materials and new technologies combined with traditional leathers and shoe making techniques.

Once I finished my white pearl collar, I decided to do some other decorations, to take advantage of the sewing kit, which otherwise is buried somewhere far in the space. Here’s some very easy examples how with some old cloth and basic sewing skills you can create something fresh and original that can make your days a little more joyful.
