Some women just love bags and others just shoes or maybe like Carrie Bradshaw of Sex and the City fame you just “live for fashion”. Carrie may not make the best choices when it comes to men but you must agree she is faultless in here selection of shoes. If like Carrie you are passionate about shoes then these designer originals, handmade by Hetty Rose are a must.
Not just a pretty shoe
Perhaps I am a magpie when it comes to colour but Hetty’s bold and eclectic use of colour and pattern certainly draws the eye. Apart from being handmade, what sets this label apart from others is the vintage Japanese kimonos used as uppers making these handmade shoes not only a work of art but eco friendly as well. I like the fact that Hetty transforms vintage Japanese kimonos into a practical and usable fashion accessory capturing a part of asian history that is fast disappearing in Japan. Due to a more western style of dress, Kimono’s are now only worn on special occasions in Japan.
Perfect for the woman who dares to be different
Hetty Rose's bespoke ladies shoes are perfect for the woman who dares to be different and who values quality and uniqueness above ephemeral trends. These are not shoes that will go out of style but will enhance any shoe collection for a long time. Like the Kimono which is a valuable piece of clothing, Hetty’s shoes are a priceless addition to any wardrobe that you can wear time and time again.
