Ms. Fado believes in combining traditional shoe-making techniques with new production technologies such as 3D printing, laser cutting and CNC milling. Silvia completed her studies at the London College of Fashion by earning a Masters in Footwear Design with distinction. Before focusing on footwear Silvia was studying to be an architect but the fashion bug bit her and she initially started in knitwear. Looking at her K4U collection below it is a blessing that she made that change.
The K4U collection is different from the others Fado has done in the past because they are more wearable. Rapid prototyping was used to create each unique heel and the shoes are made from Italian leather, acrylic, stainless steel and hardwood.
