A big thank you goes out to Precious', Foluke Akinlose MBE and Jessica Huie MBE for last night's event held at the Biritsh Library. Filling a room with eager entrepreneurs willing to engage in Jessica's experience within the PR sector. From designers to social housing professionals, it was an event buzzing with inspiration. Followed of course by the all important nibbles at the end!


The British Library is one of the issuers of one of my awards.

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!

I was emailed earlier this week with a lovely message from one of the Country's leading Bridal Magazines for the Asian Market. They sent me a screen shot of my Bollywood shoes featured in their magazine under the stag and Hen section. They were sad that they hadn't noticed the shoes earlier, otherwise they would have been featured in the main section! Still a lovely mention.

I was thrilled last week to receive a phone call frrom BBC Radio inviting me onto their lunch time show. It always means a great deal to have especially local media behind you when you are an independent working hard at trying to push through.


I am due to arrive at the studios at 12:30PM and I am sure the interview won't too long after that.


So I hope you can join me in chatting about life, awards and shoes of course!

A great course was had yesterday at The British leather Centre and John Lobb headquarters.


To be surrounded by individuals who took the utmost pride in their work was actually quite inspiring and that's how it should be. Taking such care and precision for the end result. The over 100 year old John Lobb shoe brand is steeped in tradition with a pair setting you back at a mere £1000! Though you can now see why.


The course covered aspects from lasting to leather work right through to packaging.


Thank you to the British Footwear Association for organsing the course and content.

I was very excited indeed to have recieved a ticket to be the guest of the British Footwear Association for this year's Drapers Footwear Awards.



You may have remembered me a few months ago reaching out for sponsorship opportunities to attend this prestigious event. I was very flattered to have received a few sponsorship offers, not least of all from Germany's giant footwear brand, Deichmann. However, as it is my first Drapers event, I think it only right that I accepted the request of the BFA, particularly as I am a member of theirs.



I also received a scrumptious delivery of handmade cookies, sent to all finalist of the Drapers Footwear Awards by Drapers. They were soon gobbled down!



Thank you to the BFA for the ticket and Drapers for the cookies and I look forward to spending and evening with you!

What a lovely surprise to have been told that my shoes were seen in Heat Magazine after Jessica of Hollyoks wore them to the British Soap Awards!



Looking wonderful as previosuly said, Jessica certainly did Milly J Shoes Proud!



Not only this, but Jessica was also filmed on air for ITV prime time television talking about her Milly J Shoes, once again at the Soap Awards.



Great lady!

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
