"Shoes, like jewellery or sculpture, are very sensual objects. My goal is to make shoes for Cinderella, but with a touch of the French." Laurence Dacade

Laurence Dacade has designed collections for the likes of Balmain, Christian Lacroix, Karl Lagerfeld, Givenchy, and Oscar de la Renta and in 2007, decided to create her own line, embodying the philosophy that beautiful shoes need not be painful.

The designer’s love of shoes started early. At fourteen years old, with her first solo purchase of a pair of candy-striped ballet flats, she had found her passion, and went on to master the technical aspects of designing shoes, training at the APIC School.

Overwhelmingly inspired by the cultures of the world and the women she meets along the way, Dacade’s understanding of construction as well as her passion for shoes, has enabled her to produce designs that are both comfortable and alluringly attractive.
