LFW: Obsessed With Sophia Webster

As much as I enjoyed attending fashion shows of some of the industry's renowned designers, my ultimate excitement (after meeting Tylor Tomasi Hill of course) was scouting new and under-the-radar designers at London Fashion Week. And on Day 2 of LFW, I officially made some room in my heart for relatively-new shoe designer Sophia Webster. Yup, she is sitting right up there next to Nicholas Kirkwood and Pierre Hardy

According to her representative whom I met, the designer has been working as design assistant to Nicholas Kirkwood since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2010. Aha! That explains my instant attraction to her playful and oh-so-feminine designs, she's been mentored by shoe genius himself. She’s already been picked up by Net-a-Porter, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Saks, and Colette. And I'm not surprised! When I took a closer look at her work I let out a loud sigh! I wanted them all! They all looked so fabulous and fun-looking to wear!

UPDATE: Designer has just commented on my instagram photo informing me that the collection will be available in Kuwait at AlOthman and Harvey Nichols by end of October. Can't wait!
