Tipped to be the next High Heel Heavy-Weight, Sophia Webster’s SS2013 collection <Welcome to the Dollhouse> is the first full collection presented by the designer and features a riot of colours and quirky design elements including Aztec prints, hearts, polka dots, flamingos, and eccentric graphic prints. Each of Webster’s designs are inspired by and named after various powerful, creative women known for their distinct, sartorial impact, including Yayoi Kisama and Azealia Banks.
The 27 year old London-born shoe designer Sophia Webster studied at the Royal College of Art before training at Cordwainers College. While there, Nicholas Kirkwood and his business partner, Christopher Suarez, awarded Webster two separate competitions, leading Webster to be given the prestigious opportunity to work alongside Kirkwood as a design assistant. Kirkwood has since acted as a mentor to the designer, helping to provide production facilities for her SS2012 collection.
Webster was also awarded the Conde Nast Footwear News Emerging Designer of the Year award for 2012 and has been given the prestigious New Gen Award, for the second consecutive season, by the British Fashion Council for her forthcoming AW2013 collection.
