Marcia, the manager of the Tannery's Norwich branch popped into my shop a few weeks ago and was in awe of my designs. She immediately said that she would like to offer my shop some support and suggested that I bring some of my designs into the Tannery for them to display.
As of next week, you'll be able to view some of my feather inspired shoes in their store for you to enquire about. Generously, Marcia will also put up a little blurb about my shoes alongside the designs!
This is to not only mark their exciting move from the Arcade to Exchange Street, but will be the start of Milly J Shoes within this luxury environment!

As a speaker for schools, I was contacted by St Mary's High School in Croydon to help inspire 130 teenage girls. My first impression was my amazement at seeing only 9 white faces in the sea of expectant faces. It certainly wasn't a diverse school in terms of ethnic diversity.
St Mary's is considered an inner city school and is headed by a remarkable priciple who prides herself on offering her students other avenues in which to take their lives. Hence my invitation. I am always thrilled to do occasions such as this, as in my opinion, it is the schools such as these that need the inspiration to break free from routes that many would think are already set for them.

Milly J Shoes was surprised to be told that there was a little write up in the Resident magazine, Norwich when a couple of shoppers walked into her shop the other day.
If you happen to spot my shoes in a magazine, do let me know, as quite often we are not told and it's always nice to hear we are makling the rounds!

A wonderful day was had in Norwich's well-known Forum for the annual, Spring Wedding Fair!
An intimate setting for many a bride and groom to be; including other members of the public in the iconic setting of the Forum in the heart of Norwich.
Other exhibitors included Lou Lou Loves - Vintage decor hire and many a florist and cake maker. High end, sophistacted and full of buzz was the name of the day.
Of course, I was there with my bridal shoes and am getting somewhat better at decorating my stall - there's certainly an art to it! With the help of my mother as pictured, we got there!
The next Milly J wedding show will be next month! Stay tuned for that.
