{Ethical with Style}

Once upon a time....




Do you remember Cinderella? The story about her shoes?


Well don't you think that Kitty Cooper'shoes could be the one of the history?





I've just found Kitty's website and it seems the perfet place for my Alice's in Wonderland!



Kitty decided to launch her own brand 'cause she was was troubled by the unsustainable and unethical use of materials, labour and resources.



She took inspiration from vintage fabrics, a passion that we have in common and that she "built" after spending years dealing vintage clothes in Portobello Road! All the fabrics, ribbons and trims are vintage - from the 1920s to the 1970s... Isn't it fantastic!

I've been to Portobello and I can assure you it's the right place for Vintage but at 7/8 am ... then it's just a touristic place to visit!



"...Her designs are inspired by the shapes, styles and craftsmanship of past eras, as well as the vintage 'make-do-and-mend' sensibility which is the antithesis of modern throw-away fashion."...

"...Cinderella had a wonderful time at the ball until she heard the first stroke of midnight! She remembered what the fairy had said, and without a word of goodbye she slipped from the Prince and ran down the steps. As she ran she lost one of her slippers, but not for a moment did she dream of stopping to pick it up!

The Prince, who was now madly in love with her, picked up the slipper and said to his ministers, “Go and search everywhere for the girl whose foot this slipper fits. I will never be content until I find her!" ...

and They live Happily ever after...
