For a very long time my Press and PR gurus, my retail advisors, and my personal Press office have been urging me to start writing a blog. Although I have achieved a level of notoriety (my name is imprinted into every pair of shoes sold throughout the world under the French Sole label) and obviously after almost twenty five years I am a reasonably well known shoe designer, coupled with the fact that I have had much written about me by other people over the years, I have decided to start one! (although, I still couldn’t get why people would want to read it?!).
Yesterday, Sunday June 22nd I was honoured to be a guest of the English National Ballet at the final farewell performance of Daria Klimentova who hung up her pointes to retire at the end of a stunning performance as Juliet in the Ballet’s absolutely amazing production at the Royal Albert Hall of Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet.
Charity work has always interested and inspired me, even from a very young age I would happily give away my last penny to the Church collection plate or to any street collector who waved a charity tin in my direction.
