HUGE NEWS - the secret is out and we can hardly contain our excitement. We’ve teamed up with the amazing Charlotte Loves on a shoe collab of dreams - The Charlotte Bow.
Charlotte is a fabulous award-winning female founder (www.charlotteloves.co.uk) A highly qualified Personal Stylist, TV presenter, LCS Fashion Lecturer, Fashion Editor and Blogger legend. We love her energy and drive to use fashion in a positive way.
The new Charlotte Bow heel was born out of a desire for something glam yet easy to wear and style. For Charlotte, it had to hit 4 sweet spots:
1. Pretty, feminine, yet totally wearable.
2. Work across multiple looks.
3. Twist on a trend, but totally timeless.
4. Have a sustainable angle.
And luckily, her wish list perfectly syncs with our brand ethos - if it’s made well, made fair and made different then it’s Made The Edit.
A labour of love.
The Charlotte Bow heel all started with the Steph Bow. Back in December, when we received supplier samples to try on - it was so important for us to make sure it was both comfortable and stylish.
Next up was a design session back at the beginning of March. We reviewed hundreds of different swatches in different colour ways and finishes, such as leather and suede for the shoe itself and glitter and satin for the beautiful bow.
“My favourite shoe ever was the Steph Bow, it’s comfy, pretty, feminine, timeless, durable and I loved the ethics behind it. I’ve always wanted to design my own shoes so asked Made The Edit founder Lizzie if I could design a shoe with her. We added a kitten heel and new surprising colourways suitable for all style personalities. A twist on a popular, best-selling style.” - Charlotte.
Shoes with a Conscience
The best thing about the Charlotte Bow? They’re made to order so there is zero waste. These pretty kitten heels will not be mass produced - this is us making a stand against over-production. You’ll receive a true, limited edition shoe that you can proudly wear knowing you’ve reduced your Co2 footprint.
Additionally, we’re proud to use an ethical supply chain. Your shoes will be handmade by Italian artisans; the best independent shoemakers in the world. They receive a fair salary and sustainably source all the materials used.
