Footwear Design..Summer 2014

I have not designed footwear for several years.  It used to be my passion until I fell into handbag design by accident.  I have decided to pick up my sketchbook and work on a small collection of ladies shoes for Summer 2014.    I know how shoes are made.  I have been inside shoe factories in Italy and China.   I have worked for five different footwear brands in my career.   So why not?

Here is a rough sketch...I never know what the design is going to look like until I pick up my pencil, and then markers.  I draw footwear by hand, its not something you can do on a computer if you are sketching as you go.   I can sit in bed and sketch if I want to.   The designs flow from the stroke of a pen,  its not that technical in the beginning its more of just sketching concepts, then after the concepts you can go through all your rough sketches and edit the collection.

Rough Sketch:  Sea meets Sexy meets Sporty?  Time will tell.
