Sophia Webster is the new "it-girl" when it comes to shoe designers. After she graduated from Royal College of Art, she worked with Nicholas Kirkwood for two years as his first-ever assistant. He mentored her for two years and helped her launch her first shoe collection (I have entitled it, The Alice in Wonderland collection).
What I love about all of her shoes is how playful they are. I have to imagine that Nicholas designing his zig-zag pumps and was like, "Sophia, it's time for you to start your own shoe line--bring me your sketchbook!" and since she didn't have a recent one, she brought him her sketchbook from when she was 10.
The colors, the playfulness, stylistic designs, the patterns make Sophia seem like the younger sister of Charlotte Olympia (who are both nieces to Betsey Johnson).
