My Alter Ego Shoe



After visiting the Pleasure and Pain exhibition at the V&A back in October, we were set the task to create our own shoe based on our alter ego. I decided to base my shoe around Martial arts, one of my all time favourite hobbies. My Karate masters are based in Japan and perfectly enough I fell in love with a beautiful Japanese fabric a few days before I even knew about the task, so I went back and bought it straight away! To accentuate the Japanese influence I designed the heels based on the traditional Japanese platform shoes which were supported by planks of wood on the front and the back.  The rest of my shoe is based on the more outgoing and arty side of me, with bright orange and pink sequins that stand out of the crowd. Of course, for a final delicate touch to show my softer side, I added the roses around the heels and the strap. Finally, I named the shoe, Kawaii Kiken, Japanese for cute but dangerous.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.
