Winter Wonderland Shoes

by Fluffleberry on December 2, 2010

I was once asked to design and make shoes for the bride on a winter wedding day. As soon as I embarked on this project I realised how much I enjoy the season and what it has come to mean to me. I was inspired by childhood narratives. The magic of Christmas and the nostalgia of snow queens and sugar plum fairies, but also by nature and the delicate and beautiful forms that emerge in frozen water at this time of year.

For a winter wedding think snow flakes and icicles and emulate with jewellery, glittering diamonds and cool silvers. Think warming cashmere and luxurious furs. Think pale, ethereal beauty. Think Tilda Swinton in The Chronicles of Narnia.
