It was a fabulous event on Sunday meeting with other Theo Paphitis business award winners in Birmingham. Great to hear the insight of Mike Pickles of the Really Useful Products and Holly Tucker, the co founder of, Not On The High Street.


A yearly seminar held for all of Theo Paphitis' award winners in the ICC. Supplied with plenty of opportunities to discuss ideas with his partners from Rymans, Robert Dyas, Ilaw and many more.


The sandwiches and spread was lovely.


Thank you.

What an honour! This week had me receiving a call from the founders and hosts of the prestigious, Footwear Industry Awards asking me if i'd be willing to present an elite award to one of the other finalist on the night!


I of course said a hearty yes! Need to ensure my shoes are just right for the occasion!

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.

Milly J Shoes has not been going very long at all and in fact was probably the newest brand in the room. This was the first time Milly J Shoes has been up for Footwear Designer of the Year and somehow, it managed to bag, The Highly Commended Award at the Footwear Industry Awards for Footwear Designer of the Year! What's next year...?
