A contest hosted by Joy & Mario, in collaboration with Academy of Art students for new and upcoming shoe designs. 

With vintage floral alongside bohemian animal relics, the free spirit of the California girl inspired this collection.  She looks for comfort and environmentally friendly shoes that she can throw on with her favorite boho slip dress or her boyfriend jeans and a tee.  Touches of copper foil and embroidery add just enough luster to go with the earthy textures and florals. 

 

Techniques:

I used silk screen for most of the collection. One of the swatches has gold embroidery details, and also fused fabrics together.
