I recently received these very nice images from Christina Wessén, the former design student graduated from Beckmans College of Design, who we did a collaboration with this spring. Together we custom designed 6 pairs of shoes which were shown with an outfit to each of them for her graduation show in May. Below you find an interview with Christina, which tells you a little more about her collection and the shoes!
Name: Christina Wessén
Studied: Fashion and design at Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm
Graduation show: May 22, 2012
Special interest: Shoes
Favourite blog: Advanced style (Cool, elder women with style)
Size in shoes: 41
How would you describe your personal style?
I always emanate from myself and I would never create anything I wouldn’t want to carry myself. The style is comfy yet well dressed.
Did you change your initial design during the time, or did you stick to the plan?
No, I’ve changed it a lot of times :)
How would you say the shoes look?
I’ve made 6 different models and they are all different in some ways. I wanted them to be united but still different. I found it really nice to use shiny material on the uppers. For the outsoles I liked to cover them in leather.
Describe the clothes in the collection!
They are rather simple pieces and quite spacious, they are foremost made in velvet and wool. I want to create a balance between the relaxed and the more well- dressed. It’s supposed to both feel and look comfy. But nevertheless the clothes can preferably be worn with the more well-dressed.

Have you noticed Kimber in the autumn collection? This fashion forward style with pointy toes, a rough outsole and a cool upper I think is simply a must have this season. Do you like it?

Restaurant tips from London!
When two of our designers went to London to do some trend spotting (not envious at all!) they went to eat at two different pizza places. Both restaurants have nice interiors and serves great food and are even located within the same area. If you want a more quiet place you should go for Story Deli, and if you want some more buzz Pizza East is the choise!
Tomorrow I will share some tips on vintage shopping in London!
