I am delighted to introduce a talented designer by the name of Sophia Susassi. Ms. Susassi attended and obtained a BA in Fashion Footwear from the University of Northampton. During her time at Northampton Sophia interned with Jeffrey West and won a scholarship to have her line produced by Church’s.
After obtaining her BA degree Susassi decided to travel in the U.S and during her travels was offered a scholarship to the University of London to pursue an MA in Footwear design. While honing her design skills Sophia worked on various footwear projects with Joseph Cheaney & Sons and Dr. Martens.
The design philosophy of Ms. Susassi is to create practical shoes that are exceptionally made and are also pleasing to the naked eye. I was drawn to Sophia’s work because her men shoes are just as good as the ones created for the women. For the previous reason and others Sophia Susassi is definitely one to keep your eye on.
