The kooky girl next door that isn’t afraid to let her freak flag fly high, Sophia Webster has been dubbed as the woman who put the silly back into the stiletto.
Looking at her collection of senile stitched jumpers and nerdy horn-brimmed glasses, she might look like an English rose from first glance – but this girl’s got sartorial thorns, too.
Quirky with a side of pure genius, Sophia has spent the last five years turning her penchant for cute and kitsch footwear into a multi-million-dollar business.
A young entrepreneur with a Rolodex full of the world’s most influential women lining up to get their hands on those heels, her eponymous butterfly stilettos have become an icon that puts the fun back into wholly un-functional footwear.
Starting her career at Nicholas Kirkwood, the London born and bred designer founded her namesake brand in 2012 in the heart of fashionable east London. Daring to let loose and inject a much-needed boost of feminine foolhardiness back into modern footwear, she’s the woman that put the gain back in the pain.
Joining fellow fashion contemporaries like Anya Hindmarch and Hill & Friends, Sophia was awarded the Condé Nast Footwear Emerging Designer of the Year 2012, British Fashion Award for Emerging Accessories Designer 2013 and the British Fashion Council’s New Gen Award for her first 3 consecutive seasons. She also won the BFC Vogue Fashion Fund in 2016, becoming the second shoe designer in history to receive this prestigious prize – suffice to say, she kicks ass!
Channelling her inner power animal (the flamingo) this look says it all. A flattering combo with a side of sass, Sophia isn’t afraid to throw some serious shade on everyday dressing.
Rarely seen without a splash of fuchsia or cotton candy pink, we couldn’t think of a better style accoutrement for our front row favourite than our pink Teasearama silk shirt. Styled with a powder pink jumper, this classic duo combines Sophia’s signature style with comfortable classics that can be worn all season long.
Teamed with a pair of straight fit mom jeans, Sophia Webster’s iconic floral heels add a touch of fantasy to a pared-down ensemble. Styled with this leather cross body bag, its vibrant hues and slightly beachy overtones bring summertime straight into any ensemble. Worn with everyday separates, this daring dose of vitamin D exudes a creative confidence that is anything but boring.
Sugar, spice and everything nice, this is friendly footwear with an overwhelming sense of adventure – explore Sophia’s strange yet sophisticated aesthetic and pair your latest Sophia Webster splurge with one of our colour-infused silk shirts.
