Isn’t it about time that Singapore had its own Jimmy Choo?
And by that I’m not calling for more outlets on the little red dot, but for someone to step out of the shadows and make a name for themselves in the cordwaining world (that’s the real name for luxury shoemakers)
Well if you ever fancied yourself as the next big thing but didn’t have the funding or training to make a difference then you HAVE to be interested in this new contest - The Art of Shoes - being run by Singapore’s Textile and Fashion Training Council (TaF.tc)
Those who register and take part stand a chance of winning a cash prize, a trip to a prestigious shoe event in Milan, a sponsored diploma course in shoemaking and a work placement with Charles and Keith.
Not bad eh? So the next obvious question is, what do you have to do?
