Victoria André is a London College of Fashion alumna with first-class honours in Footwear Design and Development. Skilled and creative at designing and developing women’s, men’s and kids’ footwear, with a strong ability to take a brief and follow through. Competent at CAD, pattern cutting, technical packs, product development, range planning and product lifecycle management. Trilingual with an international background.
André is the founder of Vandrélaar, with the clear objective of merging timeless design with quality craftsmanship. In a world oversaturated with fashion fads and throwaway culture, we’ve taken a step back to focus on what truly matters to us – slowing the fashion cycle down by designing with integrity, producing less, and using materials that are better for the planet.
REDEFINING CONSCIOUS FOOTWEAR THROUGH OUR DISTINCTIVE APPROACH TO DESIGN, SUSTAINABILITY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP
An anagram of our founder’s names, Vandrélaar is a nod to André’s European roots and international upbringing that inspire the brand’s aesthetic and philosophy. The Vandrélaar world is one that embraces the hybrid identities that shape all modern-day women, and strikes the right balance between effortless style, versatility and longevity. Offers both vegan and leather styles, and design our collections in limited quantities to avoid stock surplus and waste. What matters most to us is that our shoes are unique, made from high-quality European materials, and make our customers feel like the best version of themselves season after season.
