Milly J was visited in the shop and studio by University of East Anglia, International Development students. As part of their thesis, they research the changing social perspectives towards environmental issues, including recycling and landfill. How we start to do things in different ways, in which to help the implications. Is this a changing model in that we are more aware of what happens to our waste and is this a permanent change?


Here at Milly J Shoes, I am pushing the move for the public to bring in their old shoes in order to help reduce the footwear footprint. They in turn have their shoes revitalised and turned into a new design. Most of the UK's landfill is tranferred to China or Poland and this simply isn't economically sustainable! The footwear industry is one of the biggest culprits for poor landfill management.

I am not overly certain as to whether or not smelly feet are newsworthy - though the power house that is the EDP seemed to think so. Taking my Italina spaghetti and garlic bread themed shoe clips and turning it into a news item here http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/norwich-footwear-designer-milly-j-gives-new-meaning-to-smelly-feet-with-garlic-bread-inspired-creations-1-5003246

A fabulous day was had for Norwich's, Most Curious Wedding Fair. Which is also held in London. The wedding fair of course for the style savvy individual. Exhibiting alongside other quirky suppliers and designers, the day was full of a magnificent buzz, also helped along by the glorious sunshine we were lucky to have!

Milly J Shoes was surprised to be told that there was a little write up in the Resident magazine, Norwich when a couple of shoppers walked into her shop the other day.


If you happen to spot my shoes in a magazine, do let me know, as quite often we are not told and it's always nice to hear we are makling the rounds!

I am thrilled to announce that I have been invited by a girls' school buzzing with creative and academic vitality to inspire at their International Womens Day event. I will be alongside the CEO of Women For Women, Brita Fernandez-Schmidt and Paralympian, Wendy Smith.


The school had spotted me previosuly in the press and wnated to get me to share my unusual and inspiring story saying the audience of students, media, parents and governors were sure to take something away from it. I will also be singing a song from Handel's Opera, Semele and If I Loved You from Carousel.


I will be looking to do more for the community in terms of sharing my story for inspiration and strength.


Below you can find the upcoming event in the press and a larger version in the right column.

It was a fabulous event on Sunday meeting with other Theo Paphitis business award winners in Birmingham. Great to hear the insight of Mike Pickles of the Really Useful Products and Holly Tucker, the co founder of, Not On The High Street.


A yearly seminar held for all of Theo Paphitis' award winners in the ICC. Supplied with plenty of opportunities to discuss ideas with his partners from Rymans, Robert Dyas, Ilaw and many more.


The sandwiches and spread was lovely.


Thank you.
