Upon winning the award Milly was elated, saying:
"I am so excited to be given the #sbs award from Theo. It's fantastic to have my shoes recognised for their creativity as well as their future potential. I can't wait to take Milly J's shoes to the next level!"
Milly J's Shoes are sculptures and 'art to wear' shoes specifically created for every client. Each pair of shoes has been inspired by themes such as Swan Lake, Mad Hatter's Tea Party, Wizard of Oz, Vampire Diaries, Secret Garden, Rubix Cube and even Twitter!
The shoe designs can be made as 'art to wear' shoes for personal use, on a fashion shoot, for a wedding or a special event. They can also be created into sculptural shoes for display at art installations or within businesses. Some shoes Milly has made have be adapted into items like flower pot arrangements or even bouquets for a bride.
These unique and beautiful shoes are loved and worn by models, Nancy Sorrel, Jodie Marsh and actress Kerry-Jane Ellis for Ok! Magazine.
All shoe structures are long wearing, comfortable and well fitting if an 'art to wear' pair and robust if a sculpture. Prices vary from £110 to £300 to buy or specific pairs can be loaned.
