« Georgina is incredibly knowledgeable and her thoughtful approach to teaching was inspiring. She was my tutor at the London College Of Fashion and her years of professional design and teaching experience have been invaluable in teaching me how to improve on and implement my skills in the fashion and design industries. I call upon the lessons she taught me everyday. Her varied and creative approach was engaging and she gave me advice specific to my personal design goals. Georgina's enthusiasm to pass on knowledge to others makes her easy to talk to and build a rapport with and would highly recommend her. »

Shoes Designer, highly experienced teacher offers personal or group tutorials in London

Methodology

I believe in building a strong collaborative relationship and encouraging the unique creative vision of each student. I am happy to work with you individually - but equally if you want to form a small group and split the cost we can arrange this too. The group should be small (no more than 3) and all should be committed to the learning outcomes set.

Design is about solving problems through innovative solutions. I will use a variation of techniques to help develop your creative vision: You are an individual and as such the sessions will be tailored to your needs and desired outcome. I can help you achieve your vision: from concept development to final prototype creation.

The structure of our sessions will depend on where you are on your design journey. I have taught many people how to create collections and develop their potential through my experience as a teacher and practising designer.
I can teach beginners up to Masters level, and help you build a strong understanding of the footwear and accessories business.

Experience

I am a shoes designer with over 20 years experience in the industry, and very passionate about nurturing new footwear talent! I studied my BA degree at Cordwainers, followed by my masters at the RCA. I have run my own business and worked alongside many famous fashion names to create catwalk and commercial collections. I was lucky enough to work alongside Alexander McQueen and design many iconic shoes including the Armadillo shoes. I now teach footwear masters students, and have experience teaching BA Footwear as well.

Many of my students are placed in the top luxury companies and have obtained awards for their work under my guidance. I have over 20 years experience as a designer and have been teaching alongside my studio practise for 10 years

I like to encourage and challenge my students to achieve great things! win prices and gain employment. Life is hard enough we all need help, and thats what I like to do. I have enjoyed an amazing career and believe in making way for the next generation.

Georgina's CV

Georgina is most associated with her career as footwear designer and as an MA Tutor of Footwear and Artifact at Cordwainers College at UAL. .

‘Georgina has become synonymous with uncompromising style, clarity of vision and discreet originality. her designer embodies that philosophy, which has led to her being twice nominated ‘Accessory Designer of the Year’ by the British Fashion Council, and has seen her establish long standing design collaborations and consultancies with labels such as Alexander McQueen, Luella Bartley and Casadei amongst others.
An early career in fashion journalism, in both Television, on The Clothes Show, and in print at i- D Magazine and Elle, demonstrated Georgina’s unique eye for style. Ultimately, wanting a further challenge, she enrolled on the BA in Footwear Design at the world-renowned Cordwainers College in London, graduating with a first class degree. She went on to complete a Masters degree in Womenswear/Footwear at the prestigious Royal College of Art, where she studied under Manolo Blahnik and earned his coveted award.
In 2002 she launched her boutique in Mayfair, offering a bespoke Couture service, followed by seasonal collections, manufactured in Italy and with it the birth of her brand. The shop soon became a ‘must visit’ destination for discerning clients and style icons such as Kate Moss and Thandie Newton, drawn by the discreet luxury, stylish inventiveness and attention to detail Georgina has become known for. Georgina’s designs also attracted the attention, and won the acclaim, of the international fashion media. Her unstinting creativity and desire to explore her chosen craft through the prism of other art forms has led also to shared projects with artists and filmmakers.
Most recently Georgina created the ‘The Glass Shoe’ for the film ‘La Douleur Exquise’ by Nick Knight, shown as part of the Killer Heels exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum in New York.
Georgina launched her blog Love Shoes and Other Stories in 2013, a hub creative inspiration.
She works as a consultant beside creating couture shoes and sculpture in her design studio.
Alongside this Georgina is passionate about passing on her experience to the next generation, she mentors and teaches young footwear designers as well as lecturing at Cordwainers LCF and The Royal College of Art.
Georgina has also been made a member of the Worshipful Company of Cordwainers, an honor rarely awarded to a woman. This and all her other achievements acknowledge not only her uncommon talent but her clarity of purpose and determination in creating ‘amazing shoes for amazing women.’
“My philosophy has always been straightforward; Be Consistent, Be Clear, Be Who We Really Are and most importantly; Be In Love.”

Georgina is a lecturer on the MA Footwear Design course at LCF and I was lucky enough to get to work with her. She supervised my Masters thesis project at every stage and provided a great deal of guidance in both conceptual and technical elements of my work. Georgina is a leader in the industry, open minded, curious and innovative. Anyone would be very fontunate to have her as a tutor in fashion design.
