Freya Rose Bridal Shoes…

I love a pair of heels. It has to be said!  Given my current 'expectant' situation however, it wouldn't be the best idea to go round strutting my stuff in heels all day long (I tried it recently, it nearly killed me!).  But I can always look and admire in the meantime, especially at these beautiful Bridal Shoes 🙂

We've featured several fabulous shoe articles on Love My Dress – click here to browse through them all. Today, I'm introducing a designer who I've been put in touch with via my lovely friend Lisa, of Magpie Vintage.  Her name is Freya Rose and she makes shoes.  Fancy that for a living – it couldn't get much better eh! 🙂

own brand for just over 2 years.  She spends much of her time travelling to source the raw materials to

"A love for sculpture and Textiles took me to study an Art Foundation
Degree, when looking at a prospectus for the London College of Fashion I
saw a course in footwear and accessories, and I thought 'Perfect! This

the finest materials in the market, craftsmen with passion and design
with love.

Freya tells me she is inspired by all manner of things when
designing, but in particular, music, nature, travelling and period
costume ~ and Roger Vivier is her muse.  She
also describes the big bridal shoe trends for 2010/22 as 'Art Deco
Bling' (I like that!) to 'English Heritage'…
