Julian Hakes, Winner of this year’s Drapers Footwear Designer of the Year award, has developed his signature Mojito style shoe for a new ladies fashion footwear concept.

The architect turned shoe designer’s work blends his two passions of architecture and design to create beautiful, poetic and sculptural footwear.  To produce such physics-defying designs as the Mojito Shoe, Julian uses sophisticated 3D modeling, 3D printing and laser-scanning techniques.

Celebrities including Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and Gwyneth Paltrow have shown interest in Julian’s shoes, and after winning the Start Up Hub Innovation Award this year at the Tory Party Conference, Samantha Cameron is also keen to be seen wearing his designs.
