The dust settled on London Fashion Week some time ago but here am I still ploughing through my photographs. Still more to come on the jewellery front but for now - more shoes!
These amazing shoes are by London based designer Georgina Goodman. Goodman started her journey in shoe design comparatively late in life, changing careers in her thirties and going back to college to learn the craft. Quite inspirationally, she managed not only to set up a thriving business but consistently delivers very original and unique shoe designs.
Her trademark scratch stripe sole makes her shoes recognisable in the same way the lipstick red soles mark out a pair of Louboutins. As I had suspected she was the designer behind the sculptural shoes in the Corrie Nielsen show. Another trademark feature is the sculpted heart shaped stiletto heel which can be seen in the last photo. No doubt it is this kind of attention to detail in her designs that has earned her the admiration of the likes of Manolo Blahnik. I think my favourite pair has to be the gem embellished sandals in the last pair of photos.
For a fantastic interview with Georgina where she talks about how she changed career and set up her own business check out this video on Delicious Ambitious. I think people who find what they really want to do very early on in life are very fortunate but people like Georgina Goodman are inspirational in showing that you can still make that discovery later on and attain success doing something you love. As someone who has changed careers a couple of times and is likely to change again I found it quite comforting to hear a successful business woman stress that a career path can develop organically and that nothing you do is a waste of time.
