“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a silver sixpence in her shoe.”
Every single pair of Charlotte Mills’ meticulously handcrafted shoes bears these delicately embossed words on their luxurious leather soles which, undeniably, have fast become the British brand’s signature mark. Poetically referencing every aspect of this timeless tradition, a Charlotte Mills shoe is not only an accessory for the aisle, but an accessory to be treasured far beyond ‘I do’. A glittering silver sixpence will become your “something old”, the shoes are, of course, your “something new”, the luxury envelope we include (which we hope you’ll return accompanied by a picture of you, mid-celebration and wearing CM) your “something borrowed” and, finally, the exquisite blue detailing of our shoes’ in-sock your “something blue”.
Wielding an innate desire to create shoes that endlessly delight and inspire (not to mention steal brides’ hearts across the globe) designer, Charlotte Mills, is applauded throughout the industry for her scrupulous attention to detail, her inherent ability to infuse her designs with a uniquely playful spirit and sense of romance and, most importantly, her designs’ tried and tested comfortable fit. Each and every style is carefully crafted in the label’s factory in Spain (a factory that has been making shoes for over 50 years) utilising the very finest of materials and the most celebrated of skills. Charlotte’s aforementioned signature details are hand-finished, adding that final flourishing touch to a special shoe for an equally special day.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
With an already bulging portfolio of experience under her Gucci belt (having worked for several years for some of the UK’s best known high street brands) the concept for Charlotte Mills Bridal was conceived when Charlotte designed a bridal footwear collection for her final degree show. After graduating from the prestigious Cordwainers (part of London College of Fashion) alongside previous Alumni including the likes of Jimmy Choo, Patrick Cox and Sophia Webster, her ambition to launch her own luxury footwear brand was realised, and fast became a reality in 2014 with the launch of her very first collection.
Since then, a whole series of accolades have followed. Having showcased at London Fashion Week, Charlotte’s designs have been spotted on many a famous foot, not to mention being featured in some of the world’s most illustrious publications. With an engaged following of admirers, the business continues to blossom and bloom, sprouting new buds as every day passes, making Charlotte Mills one of the industry’s most revered market leaders.
