Joanne Stoker has fast carved her name on the fashion world, standing out by crafting signature pieces with daring and unconventional colours and materials. Never fearing innovation, she utilises materials such as leather, metals, Perspex and even plays with electronics to create shoes which are unmistakeably her own. The artistry associated with her heel construction and bold colour combinations has become particularly synonymous with the designer's unrivalled vision.
It is easy to see that the former Cordwainers graduate takes her inspiration from architecture around the globe. By using structures on the grandest scale and incorporating their principals to influence her own designs, she creates an intelligent and strong silhouette without compromising style or femininity.
Joanne's unique talent has caught the attention of many designers. She has collaborated with Matthew Williamson on the launch of his first collection, designed footwear for Eudon Choi's LFW runway show and has had further collaboration with The Dune Group. Recognised by Jimmy Choo on completing her Masters, she went on to do a mentorship with iconic designer before establishing her own luxury label. Joanne has won many awards including First into Fashion, The British Footwear Association Design Award and The Vogue Talents Award in Milan to name but a few.
