Joining Womankind Worldwide at the Three Butterflies Lunch

Category: Events,News

The Three Butterflies Lunch is an annual fundraising event to help empower women around the world to transform their lives and their communities. The event brings together trailblazing women who have made an impact in their field; aspiring future leaders; inspiring women leaders from Womankind’s partner organisations and anyone else wishing to celebrate and support the empowerment of women worldwide.

The guests, including Upper Street’s co-founder Julia Grinham were treated to the sharp gags and uncanny impressions of compere Jan Ravens and a brilliant stand up set from Andi Osho before this year’s Keynote Speaker Germaine Greer‘s talked about both international and national issues affecting all women.

The lunch hosts an amazing prize draw and one lucky winner took away a gift to design her own shoes with Upper Street. Upper Street is very proud to have supported Womankind Worldwide and help raise much-needed funds.

We love the beautiful and sophisticated dress by The Fold that Julia is wearing with her own design Upper Street shoes.

Find out more about Womankind Worldwide and how you can support them and women around the world.

Exclusive peek at Saint Bustier’s photo shoot.

Upper Street have partnered with new online destination boutique SaintBustier.com, the first ever retailer to provide tried and tested designer fashion specifically for larger busted women who have a bra cup size of D – H, but who wear standard clothing sizes.

To launch their website, they organised a photoshoot and asked Upper Street to provide a selection of our handmade, individual shoes to compliment their beautiful clothing line. Sarah McGiven, Head of PR at Saint Bustier said: “We chose Upper Street shoes as we love the fact that it’s inclusive and exclusive at the same time – we believe everyone should have access to stylish, well-fitting, quality fashion and Upper Street reflects this ethos with it’s varied sizing and being able to create your very own designs (as well as having the most beautiful packaging!)”

We had exclusive access to their photo shoot and can give you a peek behind the scenes.

We are very excited to see the finished pictures! The shoes compliment the outfits’ femininity and glamour perfectly. These cobalt blue snakeskin platform courts with triple strap will turn heads!

Note for this season: glitter leggings and nude platform peep toes are the next big thing. For extra playfulness go with a nude patent platform court with a bow on the front.

We love this look. Perfect for the office or a lunch with your girlfriends. Navy is not as harsh as black, but is extremely elegant and timeless. With Upper Street you can customise these designs or start designing from scratch, whichever one works best for you. Let your shoes do the talking! What do you think of the dresses featured? Let us know your thoughts on the comments below! We’d love to know!

The Golden Stiletto Awards 2012

Category: Events,News

Once again the SheSays Golden Stiletto Awards were held the 4th of October in London and we have exclusive access to the night’s events!

For the second year in a row, SheSays asked Upper Street to award the winning entry with their own personal Golden Stilettos. The idea behind these awards is to give recognition to a woman who created, planned, produced or managed a piece of work that changes the game for the digital advertising industry. It’s the first ever wearable award in the history of advertising!!

Whether you attended the ceremony or not, here’s a roundup of the night’s events, meet the winners and have a look at exclusive pictures.

This beautiful pair of gold snakeskin platform peep toes with an asymmetric front and burgundy suede and snakeskin accents, was a hit during the event.

The Winning team, Ale and Ana from Denmark, produced a video for Only, a clothing brand for feminine and strong women. In their words:

ONLY – The Liberation:
www.onlybecausewecan.com

We wanted to reach a young, female consumer by giving them a new permission to act a bit more freely and carefree, all summed up in the sentence ‘ONLY Because We Can’. The main execution ended up being a mash-up between a movie, a Flash based game, a music video, and a fashion catalogue with a focus on social sharing. We created what came to be ‘The Liberation’ – an interactive film experience with a well considered amount of user interaction, simple, yet strong design and art direction plus a highly detailed sound image.

With a simple click any time, the film freezes, turning into an interactive catalogue and from here you can: browse, like, pin, tweet and buy. You also interact with the story. Amongst other things, steal jeans, that, if you’re lucky, are sent to you for real and free. Finally your personal experience is summed up in a bespoke catalogue, so you can revisit the clothes you looked at, shop, share, download music and wallpapers.

We absolutely loved the video and those are a pair of  Golden Stilettos well deserved! Congratulations from everyone here at Upper Street, we really look forward to designing your winning shoes.

Let us know what you think about their winning project.
