Shoes… there are so many styles. Some are practical, some are for special occasions, and some are works of art. Now is your chance to design your perfect pair, and enter a competition to be judged by a panel of designers including the internationally renowned shoe designer Professor Jimmy Choo OBE. The winners will have their design shown here on the [Victoria and Albert] website.
What you need to submit:
A single jpeg image that should include:
- One drawing of your design giving a side view of your shoe.
- A list of materials that would be used to make the shoe, stating which materials would be used for each part of the shoe.
- Two small drawings of specific details of your shoe. Choose the details that you think make your shoe design unique.
- Send an accompanying email detailing your name, age (if under 18 years old), and a contact number. Do not put this information on the jpeg image.
There are four age categories:
11 – 13 year olds
14 – 15 year olds
16 – 18 year olds
