About me

Industry Fashion
Occupation Shoe designer and business owner
Location Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa
Introduction I started my business Ninon shoes in May 2007.Since 2010 I have extended my range to men's shoes, handbags and belts. All the products that I design are made here in Cape Town. Some of my shoes are made by a shoemaker who makes the shoes by hand and works from his workshop at home. Other shoes and the handbags are made by a family run small factory. My belts are made by a belt manufacturer that has been making belts in Cape Town since the 1970's. I insist on maintaining a high standard of quality. The most interesting part of working with shoes is... the way a pair of shoes can lift a mood, change an outfit, the way you can look at a pair of shoes and fall in love and the way you can stare at your feet admiringly and think how beautiful the shoes are making your feet look. A beautiful pair of shoes, whether they are plain and just perfect or slightly over the top and quirky, is special and should be looked after and treated with respect. The more you love them the more they will last for you.
