Shoe designer and NEWGEN recipient, s/s 2014
collaborated with lux, high-end department store
on its new mega denim studio, which features over
11,000 pairs of jeans
and denim-wear clothing and accessories:
re-created signature pieces
by noted and emerging fashion designers.
Inspired by the eclectic energy of the 1980s
Ms. Webster stiletto heel shoe with T-strap, texture,
colour, print and polka dots –
is an integral piece in the denim studio project.

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.
