Coming from a long line of footwear artisans, shoes are an integral part of designer Havva Mustafa’s character and her eponymous label Havva, where she delivers a fusion of traditional craftsmanship with rebellious aesthetics.The HAVVA woman is not looking for appraisal. She is confident in her own mind. She knows what she wants. The shoes are an extension of her self-assurance. A Havva creation speaks a youthful and expressive luxury.
Born into a family of third generation footwear artisans and designers, Havva’s passion for footwear was stirred from an early age. A Cordwainers alumna with extensive experience in design, manufacturing and commercial vision, Havva’s knowledge has secured her a lecturing position at Central Saint Martins, where she teaches and inspires the designers of the future. The label has featured in a number of industry publications, including Vogue.com, Vogue Italia, Instyle, Elle UK, The Blond Salad, Stylist, Bricks and among others.
