Sarah Figgins Meet the DesignerUp Close With Sarah Meet the Designer

Ms Louboutin’ is the new nickname of Sarah Figgins. If you haven’t heard about her yet, brace yourself for the hype!

A self confessed ‘Imelda’, Sarah Figgins and her business partner, launched less than a year ago as Australia’s premium online footwear retailer. Since then, has taken off and Sarah’s styles are being spotted on the feet of every fashionista in the country.

With an innate desire to create beautiful things, Melbourne born Sarah Figgins studied Art and Japanese at Monash University, before leaving for Tokyo in 1991 to explore the world. But it was during her studies that Sarah’s shoe passion and hopes were initially ignited.

After returning from Japan Sarah commenced her buying career within the Figgins family business. In 1996, Sarah’s debut Mollini and Evelyn Miles collections, showcased ultra-feminine pieces layered with character and charisma; a distinguishing look that she is still known for today.

Sarah Figgins combines her background and natural creative talent to bring some of the most modern and lavish women’s footwear designed in Australia. Sarah’s extensive knowledge of colour, fabric and form are evident with wearable looks that evoke glamour and elegance.

With strong expression of femininity, attention to detail in each style, and a design that appeals to confident women, Sarah’s philosophy is “give a girl the right pair of shoes, and she can conquer the world!”

Working with the same group of accomplished artisans for 20 years, Sarah Figgins draws every sketch, selects every fabric and finalises each construction detail that produces all shoes, appealing to conservative, eclectic and adventurous personalities and tastes.

Sarah proudly introduces as:

“THE online destination to choose a shoe that can be worn and worshipped forever…”

I have been shoe-obsessed for the greater part of my life! From stick figures with elaborately illustrated heels as a child, to my first part-time job in a shoe boutique, to a Cinderella tale of marrying into a 'shoe' family! I was a destined cobbler. The last 20 years have been dedicated to footwear design. I blend my knowledge of colour, material and form to create silhouettes that evoke glamour and elegance. I draw every sketch, select materials and finalise each construction detail that produces all shoes. I do this with passion - appealing to conservative, eclectic and adventurous personalities and tastes. My philosophy “give a girl the right pair of shoes, and she can conquer the world!” Google Plus
