Kindred Sole soul mate to shoes and Fashion

Katzme   Shoes !
We found a beautiful shoe paradise .
Its a Candy store of Flat shoes, low heels, boots and even vintage shoes by Manola Blahnik and Charles Jourdan just to mention a few.
You can find them all at Kindred Sole. You can browse through some of our choices at your leisure.

 Kindred Sole

This is a basic court shoe from United Nude with High Heels in Vivid "Fluo" red.The shoe design is with black block heels. Something every girl should have. You can find these delectable Heels on Kindred Sole web site in the "Polite Eccentrics" section
Katzme Vintage !
Vintage Red Leather Platform Heels by Charles Jourdan in a size 5 are truly couture inspired. The deep red leather makes them sultry and sexy. The platform heel makes them Party Perfect Platforms!
 It will be the beautiful match for my little black Hervé Léger's bandage dress which is the definitive party look of the new season. Added with my pop of color Charles Jourdan shoes.What a kindred pair. To finish the look off with a loose-fitted blazer.

Katzme the Vintage Manolo Blahnik Heels in Size 4.5. Dusky pink Satin with a beautiful diamante encrusted broach. Edwardian style slippers for that very special occasion. These shoes are so Sarah Jessica Parker.They are so in my size........and I have the perfect outfit to match.

This etailer company was founded by two graduates from De Montfort University’s fashion retail buying degree course.They joined forces to launch an etailer Brand called 
Here are some extracts from the interview that I had with these two very talented Ladies Lizze Leary and Beth Widdowson.
Katzme asked Lizze and Beth "can you tell me when you first thought of the idea to sell shoes on the internet ? "

" Lizze and I first met at De Montfort University when we were studying Fashion Retail Buying in 2006. We both knew we wanted our own business and after seeing some amazing footwear designer's work we knew there was a gap in the market. Rather than a stand alone store that would be limited by its geographical location we wanted to create a shoe haven that was 24/7 for women around the world. " 
Katzme could not agree more- they are certainly creating a special Shoe Haven for all of us to visit.

" We began researching ideas for Kindred Sole during our studies at university. We were excited to launch Kindred Sole in October 2009 after two years of researching the industry, the products, the designers and our customers"
" The recession heavily influenced our decision to go in to business as this was the worst year for UK graduates to enter the work place after graduation. After seeing so many fantastic designs by up and coming designer's we wanted to offer fashion conscious women a better alternative to the high street who were playing it safe due to the financial climate."

Katzme went onto ask these two Fabuloustic girl's .
"What influences your buying decisions ?

" Lizze and I both have a very unique sense of style and we believe that you should wear your clothes and not the other way around. This heavily influences our buying decisions as we feel style overcomes fashion in some areas. We are inspired by art, music, film, cities and classical designers."

" Both our backgrounds are in fashion design however at this point we are not involved in the shoe design but are beginning exciting new projects with the end intention of creating Kindred Sole's own label. "

This etailing company has a great future and even more to share with us.See what they say about their future plans.
" We see Kindred Sole developing as a brand and as we are currently only supplying women with key footwear looks we would like to extend this service to menswear. In addition to this we are planning on extending Kindred Sole into complimentary accessories and fashion items to make Kindred Sole a one stop fashion shop."
Katzme asked What are your tips and choices of shoes for SS 2010
" Our current key looks for this season are Block heels, Block colour and varying textures. The collection is going to expand into platform sandals, wedges and bejewelled sandals - our customer's can decide if they will team these key looks with statement socks! We listen to our customers and this is what they have been asking for. We believe Kindred Sole is our customer's company and we would like to thank everyone for their support." 
      Well you have certainly made the perfect kindred sole match with your perfect choices of shoes with today's Fashion.Thank you for the great Interview and Katzme looks forward to talking to you again.

Fashion Doll Mania Wearing Your Favorite Designers Outfits

Katzme ♥  these beautiful Couture Dolls
I hope you agree this is worth reading about.    
The very Talented  Young Artist Andrew Yang, has been making these beautiful dolls for more than a year now. The Kouklitas are a line of 27” fashion rag dolls conceived by New York City based artist and illustrator Andrew Yang. The name originates from the Greek word for doll, koukla.  Each doll is cut from a pattern, sewn into muslin, and meticulously stuffed and attached by hand. The faces are all hand painted, and the dresses are created using luxurious fabrics and couture sewing methods. After a doll is completed, she is named and given a story.
        He recently started to focus on the Fashion world and started to make a whole range of Super Model Dolls. They are dressed in miniature versions of spring 2010 looks .  
          The Block commissioned artist Andrew Yang to re-create some of Katzme favourite looks from the runway . Lanvin, Marc Jacobs, Rick Owens, and Ann Demeulemeester.Just to mention a few.
Many thanks
