I am thrilled that a year after opening the shop, I have been shortlisted for 3 prestigious, EDP Bride Wedding Awards. Although I have been designing and making shoes for 7 years now, the brick and mortar shop was launched last year.
Via 3 rigourous judging days, I am shortlisted for:
Newcomer of the Year
Bridal Jeweller or accessory Designer of the Year
Bride Innovation of the Year.
The award's night takes place later in the month. Fingers crossed!

This post was actually from last month - though it was a wonderful article created by the classy, handbag sized, Vanilla Magazine. Copies can be picked up from upmarket boutiques, hotels and shops.

Milly J is excited to have met a fellow creative who also likes to gently push boundaries within fashion. Taking her gently under her wing, Milly has collaborated with Hattie and Millie, the Milliner to create sets for clients. The perfect name for a ollaboarion with us, with Milly spelt differently. Offering Kirsty of Hattie and Millie a space within our shop to house some of her beautiful head pieces.
So ladies, if you're seeking the perfect shoe and hat combination, look no further! You can order by visiting my shop.

Marcia, the manager of the Tannery's Norwich branch popped into my shop a few weeks ago and was in awe of my designs. She immediately said that she would like to offer my shop some support and suggested that I bring some of my designs into the Tannery for them to display.
As of next week, you'll be able to view some of my feather inspired shoes in their store for you to enquire about. Generously, Marcia will also put up a little blurb about my shoes alongside the designs!
This is to not only mark their exciting move from the Arcade to Exchange Street, but will be the start of Milly J Shoes within this luxury environment!

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!
