At London Fashion Week I discovered the works of Atalanta Weller.
These insane sculptural pieces are the work of an english eccentric.
The 28 year old is originally from Gloucestershire. After studying a foundation course in Cheltenham, she did her BA in footwear at Cordwainers College.
“Shoes are like small sculptural buildings in their own right. I just love the challenge, the technical restrains of footwear. And I enjoy the materials – conventional leather or unconventional wood, plastic and polystyrene!”
Atalanta has been working with Henry Holland since his first runway collection and Gareth Pugh
for one show, shrink wrapping the shoes before they went out onto the catwalk.
She also has some much more wearable pieces that were also on show at lfw. Got to get my hands on those wedges!
I also stumbled across the work of Gabriella Marina Gonzalez. She designs garments as well as making out of this world accessories. I couldn’t find a website for her but she does have a blog.
Love her illustrations!
You can buy Gabriella’s work at Digitaria, London.
