I’m in love. Officially. These are the new Mojito Shoes by Julian Hakes which I tried on in Arnotts, Dublin yesterday!
Julian Hakes is a London based architect who came up with a conceptual idea for a shoe. Once the the concept was placed on Dezeen it went viral! Since then he has brought the concept from inception to production. His first collection is fluid and fun and displays his love of the curvalinear as seen in his bridge design.
He follows a long line of architects turned fashion designers, my favourite of course being Mary Katrantzou, here’s hoping for a future collaboration!
He has already won the Drapers award for “Best footwear designer of the year 2012” and is going to be BIG!
DIY Glittered Witch Shoes Tutorial from Seeing Things here.She filled her shoes with candy, but why not use an old beat up pair of heels and wear the finished product for a night? She suggests filling the toes with paper to strengthen them, but you could probably pull the paper out after everything dries. Easy DIY. *Make glitter spider clips using the tutorial I posted here.
