Taking ethnic footwear to the modern level

The most beautiful thing about fashion is that we have fusion. Fashion can be influenced by many cultures and tailored and designed according to the designer and what they are trying to convey through their art and brand.

Thaqafah Shoes (our house brand) is on the paths to merge old world ethnic design with modern fashion. The brand also uses local craftsmen who have been in the shoe game since yay high, and provide for their families solely through this skill. The shoes are created using ancient techniques and handmade from start to finish which give them character and being.
Check out some of the latest designs from Thaqafah and take a peek at the site to see the rest of the collection and stay tuned for more to come from Thaqafah in the future.

Adorable and must have shoe bling!

Here we have an absolutely innovative original take on the classic shoe kitties by Afrofly accessories brand. The kitties are absolutely gorgeous and the design is to die for.

I can just see these being worn as extra mug for those favorite pair of plain Jane loafers, oxfords, boots, or even sandals. These kitties would provide a complete makeover for your kicks.

Ok so now a little about the brand and designer. So as I understand it, the Afrofly brand was born in London by designer  Leslyn Frasier who has experience in shoe design and art.

Afrofly’s designs are also influenced by many different cultures which makes a melting pot of ideas that will be and is seen in the Afrifly’s accessories design.

 

I love accessories that take my breath away at first sight, and make me drool at the same time, and these kilties  did not fall short in making that happen. I solute the designer miss Leslyn for bringing us a twist on the classic kiltie without compromising good design and innovation.
