They spoke often about their relationship, similarities & differences between their fields of work, design and visual arts. This awakened the desire to create a work together, in which both disciplines, the design and making of shoes by Amber and the making of drawings by Albert and installations were the starting points. 

Thinking and acting in an inimitable pendulum movement with the perspective of creating something tangible. Many different layers emerge in their work; Art meets Fashion, Diversity, Making connections, Coming closer together and at the same time distance,..

Amber Ambrose Aurèle is known for her visually unique work and sky-high heels. As a designer, she explores the boundaries of fashion and art through her shoe designs.

Her creations have a sweet and twisted view that combines fine handwork techniques with innovative technology or (sustainable) material. As a modern-day designer, Amber thinks it is important that you are critical of yourself and society but also reflect on the fashion industry and think about craftsmanship, fair trade, and sustainability.
