The designer I am featuring today hails from Brazil born of Japanese parents. Chie Mihara offers a breath of fresh air to the otherwise blah shoe world. Chie's line offers a bit of abstract fashion and comfort too. Her works of art can be found at Neiman's, Cusp, Wild Women Wear Red, chiemihara.com, Anthropologie, and of course, Shopbop.com.
Here is a little background on the designer:
Born in Brazil to Japanese parents, Chie Mihara studied fashion and accessories design in Japan and New York. Mihara cites early frustration with shoes as her catalyst into footwear design: A European size 40, she had difficulty finding stylish shoes that fit. Designing a line of fashionable - and comfortable - shoes became Mihara's calling. Inspired by fashion history, people-watching, and every expression of taste, Mihara launched her eponymous line of "feminine and naive" shoes in 2002.
Now its your turn to explore the works of Chie Mihara. You are sure to turn heads when you wear these fashionable works of art!
Live Long and Shoe Well!!!!!!!!!!!!!
