Luxury shoes designer, Charlotte Olympia began designing from her love of fashion and nostalgia for the bygone era of old Hollywood glamour.
Charlotte took her passion to Cordwainers, the world-renowned college for footwear and accessories in London where she was able to explore her interests alongside technical training in the craftsmanship of beautiful shoes. Soon after graduating, Charlotte pursued her passion and launched her eponymous London based brand in January 2008.
Charlotte Olympia creates glamorous designs with a modern silhouette. Iconic styles such as the Dolly with its signature ‘island’ platform, the distinctive Kitty flats and perspex Pandora clutch box are in keeping with the brand’s feminine and playful design philosophy. All products are handcrafted in Italy using the finest materials and each shoe is finished with a signature gold spider’s web on the sole. The brand’s leopard prints, femininity and arresting use of colour have quickly become design classics; coveted by celebrities and stylish women alike.
