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.

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!

Footwear Today is one f the world's oldest footwear magazines for the industry. Packed with trends, forecasts and industry knowldege.
When I was approached by them after winning my prime minister endorsed award, I was pleased to hear that they wanted to feature my work as according to them it doesn't just relate to my footwear work, but doing good elsewhere!

This was a true hnour, as the mainstream knows the estblished publications throught the popular rom com, Notting Hill when Hugh Grant claims to be a journalist from Horse & Hound in order to get past Julia Robert's character's manager!
I was emailed by the editor to say that they'd love to feature my, Ladies Day art to wear shoe in one of their magaizines! Of course, with the shoe having an equestrian theme, the marriage was perfect. The shoes were both online and in print!
However, I have been made aware that there is a lady who has knocked off my design rights in this shoe. The shoe in question, including other elements in some of her shoes have been taken from my originals. Milly J Shoes is indeed an official registered trademark and there are design rights in place. Milly J Shoes does not tolerate infringement.
On that note, you can view my shoe below.

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!
