Well tonight’s post on Shoe Spot is a bit of an odd one. I wanted to start the new year by taking a look at some fresh new budding footwear designers, but unfortunately apart from one or two pictures posted from BA gallery shows, hardly anyone has an online presence which to be honest I think is quite strange. Last years designers from the main Universities were all about introducing themselves, creating blogs and online portfolios ready to expand and develop once they had created their first collection, but this years lot seem a bit well……… either not interested or ?? Your guess is as good as mine.
So instead I have decided to take a look at a designer I last looked at in May, Mihai Albu aka the ‘Shoe Architect’ really knows how to get imaginations going and is very ‘outside the box’, he’s known for his skyscraper shoes that are worn by celebrities like Victoria Beckham. He really has an wonderful eye for detail and knows how to kick out in style.
Below are a selection of my favourites from his Autumn/ Winter 2010-11 Collection. For further details visit www.mihaialbu.ro
For any of those up and coming designers, PM me or Tweet if you are interested in Bio’s or Interviews.
