Emmy Bridal Shoes Biography
Beautiful Emmy Bridal Shoes
I think it is fair to say I have been a little obsessed with all things heeled ever since I slipped on my Mum’s scarlet court shoes, with their pointed toe and 3 inch heels, at the age of 4 and sashayed (or more accurately slopped) around the house in them – when I most definitely should have been in bed. And there are no more important shoes than the ones you walk down the aisle in! Your shoes are not only the perfect finishing touch for your look, they also affect the way you stand and move in your dress…. shoes can make you feel a million dollars on your big day! Now had I heard of Emmy London when I walked down the aisle in 2010 I most certainly would have been an Emmy bride, take one look at these and you will see why…..
The ultimate in twenties glamour, Elizabeth with their flatteringly low cut, asymmetric diagonal strap and stunning Art Deco inspired fan trim would have been the heels for me!
Inspired by the elegance of the 1920s through to the 1950s, Emmy Shoes capture the timeless glamour of the eras with a modern edge to create pure sexiness.
Emmy Shoes was founded in 2004 by talented designer Emmy Scarterfield. Following a dazzling career designing accessories for top Italian brands Bottega and Armani, Emmy returned to England and spotted a gap in the market for exquisite, timelessly feminine Bridal shoes and so Emmy Shoes was born. Emmy’s signature hand beaded embellishments of Swarovski crystal and Mother of Pearl shell add a touch of decadent luxury to create stunning and oh so wearable works of bridal art.
Emmy uses vintage inspired lasts and heels and the best Italian and Spanish leathers to create classic, timeless pieces for every occasion from the perfect wedding shoes to the most comfortable courts, to show stopping party shoes.
Emmy’s new website is heaven on earth for any lovers of sparkly, suede, bespoke and always glamorous heels.
We all love a good excuse for a great pair of heels, don’t we? And ladies, there can be no better excuse for splashing out a little than your wedding, for there are no more important shoes than the ones you will walk down the aisle in! And no-one does bridal shoes quite like Emmy Scarterfield!Emmy is the talented designer behind leading London accessory label ‘Emmy Shoes‘ (her designs are so unforgettable you may remember my first post back in February). In 2004, following a dazzling career designing accessories for top Italian brands Bottega and Armani, the designer returned to England and spotted a gap in the market for luxurious bridal footwear and so Emmy Shoes was born. Now, after 10 years, the brand leads the way!
Heavenly, aren’t they? Inspired by the splendour of the 1920s through to the 1950s, Emmy Shoes captures the timeless elegance of the eras with a modern edge to create magnificent heels of pure glamour.
‘My inspiration never really comes from shoes! Although I have a collection of vintage shoes that I use to base some of my last shapes on, I’m really drawn to architecture, I love the structure of windows and doors and the repetition of tiling. Plus jewellery and insects play a big part in the detailing.’
Emmy uses vintage inspired lasts and heels, which with her signature hand beaded decorations add a touch of decadent splendor, whilst the best Spanish and Italian leathers ensure her pieces are classic, timeless and comfortable!
