Inspired by the eclectic energy of the 1980s

colour, print and polka dots –

She explains her technique and offers a brief narrative behind her design:

“I often use a lot of playful polka dots and stripes but this time

I decided to screen print fluoro versions of these onto blue denim …

I really wanted that shade of denim you can only get from jeans

that have faded with wear and time.

Those jeans would have told a story and the shoes just carry it on.”

(Ms. Webster was quoted in the

Stylist, Issue 179, 26 June 2013)



Shoes designed by NEWGEN recipient Sophia Webster

created exclusively for Selfridges, London


From the 11,ooo options from which to choose at the denim studio,

a pair of skinny or boyfriend  jeans may well best compliment the look of

Ms. Websters whimsical design.

What’s next for Ms. Webster?

Her s/s 2014 collection is eagerly anticipated-

all will be revealed in September 2013.
