Designing shoes with J M Weston
French luxury shoe maker J M Weston had an excellent idea to entertain, inform and educate journalists and stylists on Tuesday, October 16. About 50 of us were invited to attend a gathering at the Mayfair club George at which we met the senior team from the Limoges-based company and were invited to design our own versions of some classic J M Weston styles. Once we had finished our creative labours, we enjoyed a splendid supper.
I chose some loafers which are so good already that the only changes I made were to the colour of the stitching. The shoes are to be made in the Limoges atelier. I will report back when they have been delivered to me. The J M Weston shop is at 60 Jermyn Street. www.jmweston.com
Well done to J M Weston’s PR James Massey for his organisation. It was a fascinating evening at which I met friends old and new.
