Winning the Footwear Friends Designer Award 2008 has enabled me to develop my business under the guidance of experienced members of the UK footwear industry. The financial support the prize offers has given me the opportunity to invest in new constructions for my latest collections, adding to the signature look of my designs. I have also benefited from mentoring sessions where my designs, business plan and marketing strategies have been discussed. These meetings have given me fresh ideas, helping me to focus on the direction I want my business to take. I believe the Footwear Friends Designer Award gives young designers the best possible chance to succeed as they take their first steps in the footwear industry.
