Happy Shoe Year!

I would like to wish all shoe designers and shoe lovers a very happy and inspiring New Year! 2014 has been a shoe roller coaster with various exhibitions and various other shoe projects (Shoe Shows in the Middle East, photo research for a new series of Workman NY shoe calendars, judging shoe design students) and I have met so many passionate designers and shoe lovers!

I want to thank the museums and publishers for their co-operation and all designers and artists who worked with me for sharing their beautiful shoes with me to be able to create these exhibitions. I will sure keep you posted on my future shoe projects and new fabulous shoe designers at our website.
