I was invited by news anchor, Susie Fowler-watt to be interviewed on the BBC Look East news couch this week! This was in light to my new campaign - Footwear Footprint..


They filmed in the shop and then interviewed me for the evening news. I’m on the campaign to reduce the landfill implications within the footwear industry with 330 million pairs in the uk alone manufactured a year with most of these ending up in landfill. One pair takes 50 years to decompose with gases and toxins released into our atmosphere due to the manmade materials in use. The way forward is upcyling. Transforming the pairs you don’t wear or old shoes into new designs. Putting off the landfill destiny for another few years! Fast fashion is an issue.

Half of UK brides are late to church, so I can now reveal the shoes commissioned by UKTV. Used as promotional and marketing shoes for the brides' press calls. Creating a series of sizes in a nail biting 3 days for their new show on Watch Tv - Get Me To The Church. Veiled, and great for the bride on the run. With more to come on this!

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.

Milly J is THRILLED to announce that her hard work has been noticed once again. This time, she is a finalist for the very well respected fashion industry's, Drapers Footwear Awards 2015!



This award will see the big movers and shakers of the industry rubbing shoulders in Tower London at a night that is full of exclusivity, networking and awards.



The night takes places on June 4th 2015.



Milly J sincerely asks that if you would like to sponsor her and her husband's place at the awards ceremony, do please get in touch. Unfortunately to win this very coveted award, you need to be present on the night and the tickets are £400 each! As a small, growing one woman business, this is alas a hefty amount to shell out. So if there is anyone out there who supports Milly J and would like to sponsor her the tickets, she would be incredibly grateful!
