I am always very open to helping schools with their creativity initiatives and on this occasion, I was invited back by St Francis' School as a judge for their fashion show.


Miss Tabitha Wilson, the head of art is a truly forward thinking and energetic teacher who works incredibly hard to push students to achieve unusual works. The art students proved that they they had boundless amounts of innovative thinking and collaborative skill in creating spme remarkable works from recycled materials.


I was joined on the panel by Hertfordshire Universities head lecturer of Fashion and two other boundary pushing fashion industry women with creative years under their belts.

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!
