I am delighted to announce that I am a current prestigious, Drapers Footwear Awards finalist in the category of Footwear Designer of the year.


I do not have high hopes for my win, as I am up against some seriously well known footwear individuals and brands. Some of the finalists include Louboutin for Premium Footwear Brand of the Year to Skechers, Cheaney Shoes, Fit Flop, Clarks and many more!


The glitzy award ceremony is held in the summer in London where the winners will be crowned!

Following on from the amazing two day wedding show event at the Norfolk Showground, I was alerted to the fact that I was seen in action, conversing with the show public. Thanks to the EDP and the Norwich Evening News for this!

The Wedding Show at the Norfolk Showground is the biggest bridal event in the area. Held over two days, the weekend saw 150 top bridal suppliers and reatilers come together to meet with the enthusiastic wedding public.


It was the first Showground event that Milly J Shoes and Bridal Shoes By Milly J had attended. We were inundated with visitors to our exhibit and so it was well worth the time!

I was invited by the co founder and chairman of the East Anglian Air team recently to visit thier air base in Norwich. Patrick Peal is also the master Cordwainer of the Worshipful Company of Cordwainers, so it was a delight to share the footwear connection too.


I was taken around the area and got to meet and chat candidly to the truly inspiring team that make up the team.


Look out for connections with Milly J Shoes and the charity soon!

I am thrilled that a year after opening the shop, I have been shortlisted for 3 prestigious, EDP Bride Wedding Awards. Although I have been designing and making shoes for 7 years now, the brick and mortar shop was launched last year.


Via 3 rigourous judging days, I am shortlisted for:


Newcomer of the Year

Bridal Jeweller or accessory Designer of the Year

Bride Innovation of the Year.


The award's night takes place later in the month. Fingers crossed!

Last year, I was delighted to be approached by two local ladies who had won awards in the prestigious, EDP Bride awards. They wanted to put together an editiorial including local bridal suppliers who had also won awards within the ceremony. So I was thrilled, as I had not applied to win an award!


Karen and Emily brought together a Fauvism shoot that was bursting with local creativity and talent with me designing and making the shoes.


The shot went to print, including in Your Norfolk Wedding and Bride Magazine.
