Every once in a while, a designer comes along that absolutely blows my mind. London-based Chau Har Lee is one of them. Set to take the fashion world by storm, she has been working with some of my favourite designers like Georgina Goodman, and building up an impressive resume that now includes an MA in Footwear from Royal College of Art. Along with working with Marloes Ten Bhömer as a consultant, Chau has recently debuted her own collection. To say that it’s groundbreaking would be an understatement. Chau’s work is very experimental, using traditional shoe-making techniques as well as 3D computer applications to achieve the desired form. Combining stainless steel, wood, acrylic and leather, these shoes are certainly a work of art. Go ahead, drool.
