Welcome back shoe fans! As some of you may have noticed England has been having a bit of a time of it recently, so it was wonderful to escape to the country this week, to get our Kickstarter filming under way.
We've been in the heart of the country, in the Peak District; home to Chatsworth House (think Downton Abbey and Hugh Bonneville) amongst other notable stately homes, some stunning landscape and some great people.
After a long drive up and a brief overnight pit stop in the stunning, but vertigo-challenging town of Matlock (it gives San Francisco a run for its money on the steepness front) ...we headed through the rolling hills...and got set up.
As you can see the machines were things of beauty...
We had a tight shooting schedule, which was made all the more difficult because everywhere we looked there was a fantastic machine, still life, composition or texture.
Below are our sample uppers clicked and ready to be stitched.
By the lovely Helen...
More of our trip next week. Until then happy shoemaking!
