Pattenmakers Tercentenary Celebration at the London Guildhall

The Pattenmakers marked their 300th year in July this year with a celebratory evening at the London Guildhall. A shoe exhibition curated by Paolo Gabrielli "The Shoes that Shape Our World" displayed a range of shoes from past to present. Guest speakers included the HRH Duke of Gloucester and Alexander Schulman.

I was lucky enough to be invited to display my shoes and hold a little demonstration on what goes into the making of a pair of steel heels.
