Autumn leaves and shmoezing...

On a crisp, Sunday afternoon we took to the woods for our AW product shoot. In between the swans, bits of sun, eery afternoon fog and muddy patches we got some very pretty shots!

In true Tyra Banks style we had a clear aim: to shmoeze like never before. Now 'smiling with your shoes'  is a hard task for anyone but we are happy to report our lovely foot model, Anja, delivered. We are pretty pleased with the results... take a peek below.

Cat in a shoe box...


I just had to post this photo. Our gorgeous LAWA kitten, Karis, loves nothing more than to play in the shoe storage area... and she loves small holes to crawl in. This is her playing between the Love Art Wear Art shoes!

Sweet Anoush

Just because the nights are getting longer and chillier it doesn't mean we want to permanently retire to the sofa, with our slippers and over sized jumpers. Hell no! We want to dress up, go for drinks, catch a play, enjoy a night out with friends - all while looking fantastic. So dress up and come out to play with my sweet and sexy friend Anoush.



This gorgeous platform peep is pure elegance with her refined platform and a sexy stiletto heel. Elegant, ladylike and pretty... perfect for dressing up. The scalloped edge trim gives a feminine finish to these sexy peep toe shoes. The suede ties and tassels ties finished into a oversized bow that guarantees perfect fit and pretty fastening.


Anoush is available in two gorgeous bold colours. The bright navy kid suede is dramatic and perfect for midnight glamour while the jade kid suede injects a blow of colour to melt away any winter chill! Wear them with bright contrasting tights or show of your perfect manicure - ideal for a glam night out.

Gorgeous Inessa

Ankle boots are spot on for this winter and the perfect accompaniment to a maxi skirt or tailored trousers.  You don't get more perfect than these pointed lace up spectator booties. Eye catching, classic and fun... meet my gorgeous friend Inessa!



With her sexy heel - just over 95mm - and a very elegant point, Inessa is a ladylike dream. The classic lace up fastening means its a perfect fit for any foot, with its leather laces & pretty tassels. The delicate counter and heart shaped toe cap has fine brogue details and adds a refined finish. But it's the body panel with its delicate heart punch details that steals the show.


Available in three colour combinations, we are sure that Inessa will be a big hit this season. The black kid suede base with bright navy & chocolate leather panels is a perfect winter basic. The grey kid suede base with tan and black panels offers a young and bold, option while the sophisticated, rich chocolate suede and leather combo with tan laces ticks the classic box. So whether your style is classic, fun or formal - Inessa will be your best friend this winter.

Introducing Laini


I am a 'heels girl' and can be seen in towering wedges and chunky platforms most days, but there are times when I just need comfort. That's when these pretty summer sandals are absolutely perfect! Not only are they made from the softest suede, but the delicate caged straps really hug the foot so you can comfortably go for miles!

Springtime Garden Shoot

Happy bank weekend to everyone. I am very excited to share this stunning session with you guys today! We were blessed with a lovely fresh and sunny April morning for our spring time garden shoot. Picture a gorgeous private garden in St Johns Wood, our beautiful range of Love Art Wear Art shoes and a fantastic team. Throw in a picnic lunch, flower petals, a gravity defying 'ladder lift' and the result are these fab new pics. It was a great day and we've some gorgeous photos to show off!

And last, my absolute favourite photo...

Introducing Saidia

This is a warrior shoe with strong lines and lots of attitude. The multi-straps over the foot holds, protects and supports while the 4 inch cone heel makes this a comfortable and sexy sandal that can take you from day to night. The stirrup-like cross strap hangs loosely over the heel. The subtle embellishment gives it just enough sparkle to effortlessly slip from day to evening. The burnish tan leather sandal is perfect for some day time glamour! Wear this lovely sandal with your favourite skinny jeans to some after work rooftop drinks at Shoreditch House. 


Definitely pack the sumptuous nude nubuck pair for your summer holiday. Take on the Amalfi coast in style, perfect for poolside drinks and glamorous cocktail bars. And after a few days of sunshine the nude nubuck will be set of perfectly against your gorgeous tanned legs!

Introducing Kunja

Heels and comfort don't usually go together but Kunja is an exception to this rule. To me this shoe personifies timeless elegance. At a comfortable 4 inch height the leather stack cone heel makes for a stable, sexy sandal you can wear all day. This lovely peep toe sandal with its soft ruched fabric straps and large knots is not only pretty and stylish but fits like a dream. The linen fabric and kid suede combo is absolutely perfect for summer and the cross over knotted design folds comfortably around the foot for perfect fit and support. Comfort is key with this beauty.
I found the ethnic print fabric in a cloth shop in Soho and fell instantly in love with its monochrome texture and bold attitude. Wear this with your favourite pair of black skinny jeans or some well cut pin-stripe trousers. It's perfect for a day of shopping at Galeries Lafayette or Knightsbridge. Or join your girlfriends for tea and cakes at Bea's of Bloomsbury. Combine the bright jade sandal with a flirty floral tea dress, perfectly pretty!

Brighten up your day

On Sunday morning I slept through my alarm and while I woke to lovely bright sunshine, I had missed my oldest friends baby boys christening! We did make up for it over lunch and newspapers confirm I can officially blame it on the clock change and silly iPhone 4 mmm... 

But with March change of the clocks comes the late light and warmer weather and I am sure we are all wishing for summer to finally arrive. Don't get me wrong, I love winter with its wonderful layers, knee high boots and stylish coats but lets be honest, I am ready to embrace the slightest hint of spring so that we can finally lose those trousers, socks & hats and show some leg.

With all the wonderful new ranges out in store right now I have already selected a few gorgeous dresses and shorts that I will wear with my heels this summer. But until spring completely shows its face, there are still ways to brighten up your wardrobe and wear your favourite Love Art Wear Art shoes. Feeling too chilly for bare legs? Get the tights out and brighten up your day!

Introducing Tani

I love Tani for its towering simplicity. This sexy, striking T-bar peep is right up my street. I love the over lasted platform that gives you hidden height and the criss-cross stirrup-like straps. The peek-a-boo cut out t-bar makes for a very sexy and unconventional silhouette. But my favourite detail must be the over-hung strap visible from the back. This shoe will make you stand strong, walk tall and conquer all!


The sumptuous pale grey nubuck would be perfect for power dressing in the office. Wear it with a fitted shift or tailored trouser suit, effortlessly chic. The soft shimmering bronze with the bitter choc heel is perhaps more suitable for something a bit more glamourous. Slip them on for a romantic meal at Clos Maggiore in Covent Garden or vamp up your vintage for a Burlesque night out at Volupte. Or even better... wear them (and only them) while seducing Mr Wear Art at home!

Official Love Art Wear Art launch!

Last week was a big week for both London fashion and Love Art Wear Art. On Wednesday the 23rd of Feb, with London Fashion Week drawing to a close, Love Art Wear Art celebrated some fabulous footwear with a launch party for the Spring Summer 2011 range. It was a big night for us, the culmination of months of hard work and a celebration of our big love and passion for shoes.


The launch was held at the intimate and chic Ladiray Gallery just off Oxford Street. Some shoes were showcased suspended in golden birdcages, hanging down from the ceiling and tied with red ribbons.  Others perched on pedestals made from our pretty Nika shoe boxes. On the walls behind the shoes, on printed canvas was the original drawings that make each pair of shoes its own piece of lovingly crafted, wearable art.

The cages have a special place in my heart as there were lovingly hand made for us by my father Gert le Grange. The cages looked beautiful and even though my parents couldn't be there on the night they were definitely there in spirit.

The turnout on the night was great and the gallery was buzzing. Nibbles came in the form of some delicious cupcakes, courtesy of baker extraordinaire, Ms Peters, and there was free-flowing bubbly to drink. The evening was filled with friends, laughter and not just a little shoe lust. A good night in my books!

The range itself was inspired by my travels and by the Nigerian artist Chris Ofili. Underlying the Nika range is an ethnic feel expressed through sky-high heels, gladiator straps and rich jewel-like studs. Each piece of the collection is designed with the shoe-lover in mind; from the buttery soft luxury leather used, to the varying heel heights and hardware detailing. We love each and every one of our shoes, and to make sure you know how exclusive they are, we have individually numbered each of them with a tiny metal banner on the breast of each shoe. In the Nika collection, there will only ever be 50 pairs in each style and colour.

Thanks to Darren and Dale (our lovely boys) who were always at hand with another glass or some footwear fitting assistance. The comments from the fit section at the back of the gallery were great. We are happy to report that the comment 'So comfortable!' came up on a number of occasions

We had a fantastic night and want to thank all our friends, supporters and the lovely blog writers and press for their support and kind words. We hope that you had a great evening. Until the next time...
