THE ART OF SHOES

The Art of Shoes is a footwear design competition that aims to inspire budding designers. It also aims to elevate public awareness and interest in the fashion and design industry. Highlighting the intricacies of shoe designing, the competition allows the participants to see the production of their creations after a four-day “WSQ Sketch Footwear Design” workshop by TaF.tc (Textile and Fashion Industry Training Centre) – where they learnt the critical knowledge and skill-sets required to enable them to develop footwear designs.

2118: Love, Joy, Peace

Over the course of the programme, contestants took their designs from paper sketches to digital designs using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. For this year‘s competition, they designed a pair of ladies’ ballerina flats, and mid-heel court shoes according to the theme “2118: Love, Joy, Peace”. From these participants, nine finalists were shortlisted, and their collections are presented here.

If any design receives 10 orders, the design will go into production and will be sent directly to you!
