Five minutes with shoe guru Charlotte Dellal

25 February 2009


Out and about at the London shows this week, we bumped into one of our favourite shoe designers, like, ever. And seeing as we've spotted several signature Charlotte Olympia (the name of her shoe line btw) platforms strutting their way down the catwalks, let alone the streets, we figured we'd get her take on all things fashwan over a glass of champagne.

On sister Alice Dellal... I'm really excited about it all, but I've only managed to get to see her walking for Issa.

On Charlotte Olympia and the catwalk... I made the show shoes for Krystof Strozyna and Emilio de la Morena, and Issa borrowed some stock too.

On her favourite Charlotte Olympia skyscrapers... My thigh high platform suede ‘Bowie' boots. They're part of my new collection and are named after the legend himself...

On her guilty little fashion pleasure... Hosiery! It's crazy how much I have. I just can't ever have enough.
