Emily Jupp of Milly J Shoes has delivered her special ‘Easter’ Shoe to the Maids Head Hotel. The shoe will be on display in hotel reception throughout the Easter period.
Emily is a shoe artist and is creating a series of shoes, linked to key events in the Norwich and Norfolk calendar, for display at the hotel. She crafts her handmade shoes and clips in her shop and studio in Tombland, just across the road from the Maids Head.
Winner of the EDP Bride Awards Innovation Award 2018 and Footwear Designer of the Year 2015, Emily has launched a campaign to get people to bring their unwanted shoes to her shop, so they can be upcycled into one of her colourful creations.
Guests enjoying hen party and birthday party afternoon teas at the Maids Head, can also book Emily for a fun workshop to design an create their own pair of shoe clips, which they take home in a presentation box.
An Afternoon Tea with Milly J Shoes event, including a shoe clips workshop has been arranged for Sunday 17 November www.maidsheadhotel.co.uk/event/afternoon-tea-with-millys-shoes
Christine Malcolm, General Manager, the Maids Head Hotel said: “We are so pleased to have embarked on this new partnership with Emily, whose work has been endorsed by the likes of Boy George and Kylie Minogue. Her shoes are proving an excellent talking point for our guests.”
