I’Alave is the brainchild of designer Eva Lai. Eva was born in Taipei, Taiwan and as a result of her burgeoning love of fashion decided to attend the London College of Fashion. During her final year at the college Lai realized her true passion was shoe design and decided to pursue this love after graduating in 2006. I’Alave was established in 2013 in San Francisco as a way for Eva to create shoes that were the perfect blend of femininity and comfort. Each shoe is made in Italy and in 2014 the label was chosen by Vogue Italia to participate in the Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience.
I’Alave continues to receive favorable reviews in the press and it is result of Eva’s unique fashion perspective and trend-setting feminine designs. All of the styles in the article are currently available from the I’Alave website.
