Designer Story
Born out of a love for stilettos and all things pretty and DECADENT, sister duo Celyn and Trifina decided to start their own shoe line after many attempts to find the kind of shoes that they love. Shoes with the perfect arch, just the right heel height, not too much edge, and above all, a timeless style that one can wear in any year or era.
Born out of a love for stilettos and all things pretty and DECADENT, sister duo Celyn and Trifina decided to start their own shoe line after many attempts to find the kind of shoes that they love. Shoes with the perfect arch, just the right heel height, not too much edge, and above all, a timeless style that one can wear in any year or era:

We are a sister duo - one is an avid shoe and lifestyle blogger, the other a banker. A third sister on the other side of the world weighs in on matters of taste, when us two get too carried away.

Each design takes months in the making, from conceptualization, to sourcing embellishments, to shoe-lasting, to prototyping, to wear testing, and finally, the production run. We work with a talented group of local shoe-makers who share our vision of creating local, hand-made QUALITY items, that are unique, and at the same time, attainable.

We take inspiration from travel, art, the great shoe designers, and things around us - expect to see creatures and not so creepy crawlies crop up from time to time.

The guiding theme in our design philosophy is DECADENCE. We believe a daily dose of decadence is key to an all around feeling of content. One shouldn't have to wait for a special occasion for a treat. Have that cupcake for breakfast, sip on wine for brunch, wear those fabulous SHOES just because. It doesn't have to be expensive, just special!

This is our first passion project under that philosophy and we eventually hope to expand that . Also expect the occasional blog post link to Style & Chocolates for decadent recipes or style moments, and Life is a Shoe for more high-Heelspiration.

Q+A
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME A DESIGNER?

We've always loved shoes for as long as we could remember! Celyn has been writing a shoe blog (lifeisashoe.blogspot.com) since 2009. Her friends have  been telling her for the longest time to design her own shoes already. Trifina got her first pair of heels at age 9, and used to own over a hundred pairs of shoes at one point. She would walk around the college campus in stilettos! Never mind the occasional stiletto stuck between the pavement cracks
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING A FASHION DESIGNER?

Seeing the progress of our ideas from paper, to prototype to the actual shoe. And then getting to wear it ourselves.



WHAT HAS BEEN YOU BIGGEST CHALLENGE?

Definitely execution.  Sometimes our ideas don't t always come out to how we envisioned it to be and it can take several tries to get the protoype just right.



WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION?

Everything from places we traveled to, history and culture and legends and myths.

Sometime last year we were having a conversation about how difficult it was to find the kind of shoes we like, at price points that we could actually afford. Shoes that focus on SHAPE and wear ability, rather than striving too hard to be "edgy" or "high fashion" or "trendy". Shoes that would actually take into account the wearer, how they would lengthen the legs, if you could actually WALK in them - and it just hit us why don't we just MAKE our own shoes? So then sometime last year, we just went ahead and did it!
