It has been five years since Charlotte Olympia Dellal launched her own shoe brand. From then until now, her unique style, great ambition and a collection that combines modern glamour with retro fantasy and spirit, have become the latest in being awarded Designer of the Year at the FN Achievement Awards.
“Irreverence and femininity are her greatest assets”, says Holli Rogers, fashion director of Net-a-porter.com. Her obsession for detail and her personal vision of fashion have made the Charlotte Olympia pumps and ballerinas cult objects for fashionistas worldwide. And she is quite clear: “I do not want to design shoes that I cannot sell. At the end of the day, Fashion is a business”.
