For a very long time my Press and PR gurus, my retail advisors, and my personal Press office have been urging me to start writing a blog. Although I have achieved a level of notoriety (my name is imprinted into every pair of shoes sold throughout the world under the French Sole label) and obviously after almost twenty five years I am a reasonably well known shoe designer, coupled with the fact that I have had much written about me by other people over the years, I have decided to start one! (although, I still couldn’t get why people would want to read it?!).
I have been possibly Roger Saul’s most devoted fan since I bought the most beautiful belt back in the early seventies - in fact that belt was so admired that I wore it for years and years until it finally fell apart - but I loved it and can still feel the leather and see the buckle and feel the feeling of slipping it through the loops of my Levi jeans - mmmmmmm!!
Since I first started my long career in shoe making over twenty five years ago - it has never ceased to amaze me at the complete lack of attention many women pay to the care of their shoes - sometimes shoes that have cost very large sums of money.
