We're all guilty of it...choosing a whole outfit based around a beautifully stunning pair of shoes.
Suddenly though when it comes to one of the most important days of your life, your wedding day, your choice of footwear almost gets forgotten in the search for your dream dress.
Shoes are one accessory that should never be overlooked! Whether it be a jewelled pair of flats or a show stopper killer heel, they have the ability to make or break any ensemble.
This is something that bridal footwear designer Charlotte Mills knows only too well. The amazingly talented designer from the other side of the Pennines graduated with a BA Hons in Product Design & Development for the Fashion Industry. For her final degree show, Charlotte created a bridal footwear range and this is where her dream began.
Each pair of Charlotte Mills shoes is hand crafted in Spain using only very best materials and craftsmanship. The factory Charlotte has selected to work with has been making shoes for over 50 years, which is evident in the attention to detail and quality of the finished product.
Charlotte’s Shoes are romantic yet fun, with fashion forward styling. She believes it is important to create shoes which stand out from the crowd and wanted to create a fresh look for bridal footwear with her unique designs. Love hearts provided the inspiration for Charlotte’s debut season and still play a big part in her current collections along with statement heels, glitter and girly details, these elements have become a signature to the Charlotte Mills Brand.
Each of Charlotte’s Bridal shoes are hand finished with a silver sixpence and the leather sole is embossed with the phrase
"Something old, Something new, Something borrowed, Something blue and a silver sixpence in her shoe."
All bases of this old rhyme are covered with each pair of Charlotte Mills Shoes:
Something Old: the Sixpence
Something New: the new pair of shoes
Something Blue: details on the insock
- Something Borrowed: a envelope which you send back after your wedding day with a picture of you wearing your shoes.
Charlotte hopes each bride will fall in Love with their wedding shoes and they will be a keepsake of their special day to treasure forever.
