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....

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