!! OMG, SELECTION COLLECTION: Liz Ciokajlo's 'Natural Selection' heels !!
The recipient of the Jimmy Choo Dato Cordwainers Award, Liz Ciokajlo is a footwear designer based in London with a furniture design background.
Her shoe collection entitled Natural Selection uses mixed fibrous materials with bio-resin, binders and latex to allow molding and sculpting of continuous pieces that form-fit the foot.
"Innovative materials used in the product and furniture industries were "borrowed" and applied to fashion footwear raising further challenges as to what materials are acceptable, in a trend lead fashion context."
Ciokajlo experimented with coconut HUSK, FLAX and HEMP materials, combined with WOOL felt linings and 3D-printed hollow heels to give the collection "a softer...more feminine...approach". You can see several pairs from the collection plus materially-deconstructed layouts of the shoe components after the jump.
