Louise and Laura are two shoe designers for Australian Women’s footwear brand, Mr & Mare. We interview these fashion crazy Melbourne gals about traveling, what inspires them and their favourite styles from the Mr & Mare collection.
In three words, how would you describe Mr & Mare shoes?
On-Trend, Youth-Driven, Need-It-Now.
(We couldn’t narrow it down to just three so we hyphenated!!)
What is your favourite part about being a designer for Mr & Mare?
Seeing how our customers respond to the ranges is inspiring! We’re now more connected to customers and ourselves through social media, which in turn makes us more confident about our creative ability. The constant evolution and growth of the brand in the marketplace is such an incredible journey to be part of.
Where do you draw inspiration from when designing your collections?
We both have super high energy levels and get excited over the smallest things. A little idea always grows to be something big! We are both really busy socially, so we draw inspiration from our friends, festivals, people watching and parties. Travel is a big part of our inspiration. It challenges you to think outside the box and produce something new!
What is your signature style?
We are always tanned, smiling and laughing! Lol!
Who is your style idol?
We are both currently obsessing over Mimi Elashiry! What. A. Babe.
Favourite spare time activity:
We both have the travel bug and are always looking for our next adventure!
Currently listening to:
Summer by Calvin Harris has been on repeat in anticipation for summer!
