Three Things; Flashback Friday – Sue’s Garden Inspired Shoes

Flashback to Sue's Garden Inspired Shoes

Flashback Friday today and we are going back to 1999 and Sue Barnes’ Arts Foundation course which she did at West Cheshire College.

Sue Barnes' garden inspired shoes

These couture shoes were produced for a Fashion module in response to a brief ‘Make a pair of shoes for a gardener’. Instead of making a sensible pair of jazzed up wellies or waterproof clogs, Sue made these wonderful concept shoes.

The shoes are inspired by autumn leaves and are richly detailed with machine embroidery.

Wooden heels!

Take a look at the heels made from a fallen branch of a sycamore tree from the garden of Shore Cottage.
