The widely read, Norfolk Magazine was very generous in offering me a 3 page spread in their glossy magazine.


With photographer in tow, the editor interviewed me within my shop and was in awe with the most unusual gifts and bespoke shoes on offer!


All About Shoes can be found on Norwich's, St Benedicts Street .

I am thrilled to announce that I have been invited by a girls' school buzzing with creative and academic vitality to inspire at their International Womens Day event. I will be alongside the CEO of Women For Women, Brita Fernandez-Schmidt and Paralympian, Wendy Smith.


The school had spotted me previosuly in the press and wnated to get me to share my unusual and inspiring story saying the audience of students, media, parents and governors were sure to take something away from it. I will also be singing a song from Handel's Opera, Semele and If I Loved You from Carousel.


I will be looking to do more for the community in terms of sharing my story for inspiration and strength.


Below you can find the upcoming event in the press and a larger version in the right column.

It was a treat to be contacted by the editors of Germany's leading equestrian magazine, Cavallo, wanting to feature my Ladies Day shoes this month, alongside their usual horsey news! You may also remember seeing my shoes featured in Horse and Hound a few months ago too.


The Ladies Day Shoes are inspired by Ascot and the flamboyant hats of the day, only despicting this into footwear.

Thank you to all those who took the time to vote for me in this year's prestigious, Footwear Industry Awards! Thanks to all of you, the footwear and fashion establishment have chosen me as one of their top 5 footwear businesses in two categories. I am a finalist for:


Fashion Brand of the Year

Footwear Designer of the Year.


I amazed with how the tightly locked industry chooses me as a one women business who designs, markerts and hand creates all her shoes herself. Being up against large teams of well known brands is indeed humbling.


Once again, thank you. Results in soon!

So pleased to announce that her efforts have once again been noticed by Theo Paphitis. Two years ago, Milly J Shoes won its first business award from the man himself. That was indeed a grand moment and Milly J became one of Theo's, SBS Award Winners. SBS awards small business owners and is a great platform for businesses to gain the support from the famous ex, Dragon's Den Dragon and business tycoon. This time, Milly was alerted that Theo has now chosen her as this month's, Business of the Month. This is great, as it means Milly J Shoes is still on the tycoon's radar! Thank you to Mr. P!



Best wishes



Milly J

Whaaaaaat?!



Sunday saw top members of the footwear industry gather for the yearly, prestigious, Footwear Industry Awards. The likes of Nike, Skechers, Clarks and many others joined for a banquet filled evening of coveted awards and milestones marked.



My husband and I sat on the table with some of the organisers and it was an enjoyable affair.



Some of the awards included, Footwear Brand of the Year, Independent Retailer of the Year, Personality of the Year and Men's Footwear Brand of the Year. With all the awards going to big, well known and loved footwear brands. So the thought of receiving an award seemed certainly out of my league!



Somewhere amongst the glitz of the night, the Footwear Designer of the Year came up. I was up against well established footwear brand designers. A one woman business was not going to win this award. Though somehow... my name was announced. "And the winner of the Footwear Designer of the Year Award goes to Milly J of Milly J Shoes"!



Well, firstly was, there must be a mistake and then secondly was, how am I going to walk the aisle to the stage in these killer heels?!



So my wonderful Milly J supporters, there is a place for Striking Unconventionality and I thank the industry for crowning me their winner.
