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!

I was very pleased to have been contacted by the founder of the Precious Awards, Foluke Akinlose MBE saying that the Independent Newspaper wished to interview me.
The article centred around women of colour in the business environment with of course the Awards celebrating women of colour in business. I was eager not to make it a race issue and so I was quoted in the newspaper with my proud mother saying it was a sophisticated comment!
the article can be read here, with the bulk of the information coming from the Foluke herself.
