Sophia Webster

Name: Sophia Webster

Known For: Playful constructions

Bio: Sophia Webster may be new to the shoe scene, but not so much to the art aspect of designing. She studied at the Royal College of Art and Camberwell Art College, then trained at Cordwainer’s College; which may be why she prefers to hand-draw her prints. She was mentored by Nicholas Kirkwood for two years, citing him as the reason for developing her own shoe collection. She debuted her Spring 2013 “Welcome to the Dollhouse” collection in September 2012.

Her pumps were recently featured on The Zoe Report, hailed as ,”outfit altering, irresistible shoes.” They are currently produced in Brazil, where Webster coincidentally drew on for inspiration for fun prints, colors and playfulness of the collection. So far the shoes are exclusively sold on net-a-porter.com, but have been picked up by Saks, Bergdorf Goodman, Colette, and several more.

Quotes: “If shoes are uncomfortable it means the pattern’s been incorrectly cut. I keep heels simple so they fit well.” (source)
