Thurs 5th Aug: A visit to Atalanta Weller's Studio
I had an absolutely magic day yesterday travelling round London visiting different designer's studios and bumping into others along the way. One of my stops
was to see Atalanta Weller to borrow a pair of sexy wedge heels in her signature graphic style. Here are some of her samples which line the shelves inbetween magazines and lasts. The shoes hanging on her wll as inspiration are a collection of pieces acquired whilst travelling and also from her childhood - inc. her own mini pair of ice skates. Apparently this machine is called a "skiver" which is the same word for bunking off but not at all the same meaning! I'm really looking forward to seeing her new collection as part of the New Gen exhibition at Somerset House LFW next month.........
