The Wallet Shoe is the result of an attempt to re-imagine the typical oxford shoe. The design is fun, sleek, and functional.
The shoe aims to make a statement towards money laundering in the world. Its elegant look resembles the ultra-rich and its hidden money pocket show how they cleverly hide their money for tax avoidance.

The project included design, patterning and construction of the shoe. Before the final make there were some mock ups created to test out the design.

I am a multi disciplinary industrial and fashion accessory designer with professional experience in applied projects, design studios and corporate environments.
As a young creative I am humble and always seek for opportunities to learn and grow. I like challenges and enjoy being a critical thinker. I enjoy working in teams and hold myself to high standards. I believe in design and its potential to change the world for the better.
Some of my interests include sports, sustainability, space exploration, energy, footwear, fashion and history.
