The Story

There was once a young lady, an innovative shoe designer who specialised in creating inspirational, unique shoes. Inspired and driven by brides all over the world to have and to hold their very own piece of art in the form of a shoe. By challenging traditions, embracing modern romantic and refined femininity, Sonia Brown created the most perfect bespoke hand painted shoes.

 

Before graduating from The University of Reading in 1999 with a degree in Footwear Design and Construction, Sonia had the privilege of being selected to create her final graduation collection at Clarks, where she showed her work at the BHS South Bank Graduation fashion awards. From here she worked as a footwear designer for high street brands including Next, Marks & Spencer, Topshop, Debenhams and Dorothy Perkins. It was from there that she decided to branch into the bridal sector and formed her own company, Sole Creations working for top designers Alan Hannah, Toni-Ann, Rainbow Club and Meadows Shoes, transforming their collections inline with the beautiful dresses that lined the catwalks.

Her philosophy has always been quite simple - to make wedding shoes stand out from the crowd by adding personality and creating a real style statement. Tired of those plain, uninspiring shoes that line the wedding shop shelf? Well, worry no more. Sonia's unique ideas are beautifully hand-painted with love and care and will be something to cherish as part of your big day and for a lifetime.
Sonia's influences are 18th century Zephirine florals, tweaked with rich contemporary themes, Rococo edge, decorative trims and Swarovski crystals. With all these magical ingredients, your feet will be transformed into what dreams are made of.
