Cordwainers College was founded in 1887 and became part of London College of Fashion in 2000. This gives our Footwear and Accessories courses an unrivalled global reputation, but also allows students access to the extensive Cordwainers archive and invaluable support of the Cordwainers Advisory Board.

"The upper is made out of soft materials such as sheepskin and fabric. The designs involve a lot of quilting, and details such as lacing and taping, inspired by Korean traditional craft and modern lingerie. For the heels and platforms, I used 3D printed nylon and highly compressed paper blocks cut by CNC milling."
