Sophia Webster has unveiled her first collection of bridal shoes
"I was finding a lot of women on my Instagram tagging me in their wedding photos, having chosen shoes from my mainline for the big day," she told British Vogue. "Our website had a waiting list for my Coco pumps in ice blue satin and the Evangeline angel wing sandals sold out in less than 24 hours which, in my opinion, was my most bride-friendly offering."
Sophia, who wore her own shoe designs for her wedding day, revealed that it was actually a special pair of shoes created for a friend which kicked off her desire to create an entire collection. "I had designed a pair of wedding shoes for my friend Jessie Ware," she revealed. "I knew she was getting married on the beach so I made her a pair of my speech bubble flat sandals to party in that read 'Wifey for Lifey' across the toes.

"We had so many enquiries about them and it made me realise that there are definitely women out there who want to have fun with their footwear on the big day."
It comes as no surprise that the designer has branched out into the world of bridal. Her quirky and bold creations have already seen her win the 2013 British Fashion Award for Emerging Accessories Designer, and she was catapulted to global fame after she designed the shoes for the Victoria's Secret fashion show in December.
