DESIGNER NAME: Joanne Stoker
BACKGROUND: "Joanne learned her art at the renowned Cordwainers College in London where she graduated with a Masters in Footwear Design.
She was spotted and mentored by Jimmy Choo before establishing her own eponymous brand.
Joanne has collaborated with numerous designers like Matthew Williamson, Dune and has along the way picked up many awards including the highly prestigious Vogue Talents Award."
SIGNATURES: "Like any artist, her work is recognisable by distinct signatures; architectural heels which evidence Stoker’s love of cubism, strong shapes reflective of Stoker’s obsession with architecture. Yet her addition of eclectic materials and bold colours ensure a result that is fascinatingly unique.
Each pair of shoes is crafted to perfection, every detail is meticulously checked. Stoker literally searches the world for the finest, most interesting materials but everything is hand finished here in England. Whilst each shoe looks like something you would see in a gallery they are miraculously very easy to wear".
