KERRIE LUFT shoes are gaining recognition for their unique organic shaped heels that merge new technology with traditional Italian craftsmanship. They have been embraced by fashion’s most influential editors and featured in publications such as VOGUE Italia, Dazed and Confused, Elle, L’Officiel, VOGUE.COM and Madame Figaro.
"A self-described ultra-optimistic dreamer, Kerrie holds onto an intriguing idea until she can make it become a reality".
Born in 1983, Kerrie studied in England from 2003-2009 obtaining bachelor’s and master’s degrees in footwear design from Northampton University and the London College of Fashion respectively. Kerrie worked with British accessory queen Lulu Guinness and Canadian-British design legend, Patrick Cox while still a student. She credits this time with giving her ‘a good grounding and an understanding of luxury’.
A key turning point occurred in 2011, when Kerrie was awarded the Fashion Fringe Accessories prize. This propelled her to Paris, where she worked alongside Bruno Frisoni at the house of Roger Vivier. This experience prepared her for the launch of her own brand whilst re-locating to Milan where the designer is now based.
