Hetty Rose- Handmade Shoes to Order

Hetty Rose's Ella from the Kimono 2 Collection

Oh, how I love vintage reconstructed clothing. Hetty Rose has a unique story of how she makes her own shoes for fly girls around the globe:

The Hetty Rose label makes shoes.

The collection is based on a theory of re-using and re-working vintage materials in a creative and sustainable way, hand making gorgeous, feminine shoes to fit.

These materials are primarily vintage Japanese kimono fabrics: relics of a disappearing world, saturated in significance and hidden meanings.

The colours and folds signify various seasons, occasion, status and personal taste of the wearer.

The designer hand selects the most exquisite antique fabrics to use as uppers for shoes to create unique handmade footwear.

The designs are simple, yet provocative, designed to make the foot appear more attractive.

The collaboration of colours, materials, service and directional design result in unique, wearable footwear.
