Carreducker opens at the Design Museum London



Welcome back shoe folk...and what an exciting week it has been. We finally made it to the Design Museum on Tuesday night and partied with the design great and glamorous....
  
  

...Madame Shoe wearing Ute Decker jewellery for a 'wow' factor 

The roof - a hyperbolic paraboloid 

Extra large signage in case we forgot...


Lots and lots of party people...








 



Sir Terence Conran and  Museum Director, Deyan Sudjic OBE

Jarvis Cocker manning the decks...


Cheers!




Cocktails anyone?

We eyed the crowd for exciting footwear, but truth be told and immediate company excepting, there was a dearth of great men's shoes or boots. The ladies however, were rocking some significant looks....here are a few favourites.

Corsetting...


Crystal heels, sparkly buckles and a pointy toe...


Clergerie clogs...


Silver stilettos...




Coloured platforms

Sporting vintage Robert Clergerie

Testing out some William Lennon boots ahead of our next Kickstarter


And here it is....our display in the museum! 3000 people visited yesterday alone, so handsewn shoe making is getting seen!

That's me, watching me sketching a design on the big screen!

Boots, lasts, patterns, tools, materials...the boot making story
and Camilla Corr's wonderful film capturing the process
 



Wow! Now we're enjoying a very festive Open Studios then back to normal and the workbench. Until next week, happy shoemaking!
