Abandoned on a bus in Jamaica at the age of 8 months old and found by a policeman, I was taken to an orphanage and shortly after adopted by British parents.
Because of their work, I moved from Bangladesh to India, to boarding school in the Uk and Jamaica. I am lucky enough to have visited some over 40 countries so far.
Losing my genius of an artist brother to suicide just over a year ago caused me to re look at what makes me and others truly happy, so I started Milly J's Shoes, whereby every design is dedicated in his honour.
We all know that people will plot for a shoe, they'll scrimp and they'll save for that magnificent two. Though what happens when that shoe is produced into art, made just for you and will enamour your heart?
Look past the Shoe that is used for your feet, that functional pair within that boutique. Look past the shoe so flat and so tame, the pair that is purely for practical gain.
I have a persuasion so viciously keen, displays for events that are fit for a queen. Branding or weddings or shop window displays, to mark your occasion in unusual ways.
Hand made from scratch and imagined by me, sculptural displays at a personalised fee. Shoe bouquets for events filled with flowers galore, on top of tall plinths or lined stylishly on the floor.
Shoe displays with your labels, so skilfully made. A memorable treat to rent or be paid. Or that exceptional gift made just for her, that personalised feel for her delicate lure.
Look past a shoe as being just that, for I see a Shoe as a means for a chat. A canvas for me, as is paper and pride. That specially created theme with your guide.
Shoes with real wings and birds of great flight, creations infused, a shoe as a light? Newborn designs that look like a buggy, you can advertise right here for your new range of Huggies.
If art mimics life and life mimics art, allow my creations to woo from the start. For Milly J's Shoes goes beyond and above, The brand brought to you that has been formed with love.
