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.

Did you manage to catch Milly J strut her stuff on prime time show, Four Rooms? Milly J made a great impact when all four dealers had great praise about her shoes. So much so that Milly even managed to bag dealer, Celia Swayer as an investor! Great times are ahead and Milly has much to look forward to with Celia on board!

Can you believe that we were approached by a fashion author to write about our shoes in her published book?! Author, Tracy Martin has written countless articles and books and regularly appears on television as a expert in her field of fashion, collectables and antiques. This book includes some fabulous pictures and covers shoe designers from Westwood to Louboutin and of course, Milly J Shoes! It is now available to pre order.
