Aksha Fernandez

Shoe designs

Aksha is not a strong believer in fast fading fashion trends, but rather believes in carefully handcrafted work combined with timeless designs that tell a story. Her shoes often take strong references from architecture and nature.

Inspiration

"This collection takes inspiration from my past as well as my present.

I have always appreciated Indian architectural details. I am especially fond of lattice (or "Jali") works. A wall or a facade with Jali shields the inside of the building from harsh sunlight.

I have used similar Jali patterns for this collection but with intentionally cleaner, simpler shapes taking inspiration from Scandinavia. Here decoration is reduced to a minimum, expressing only what it needs and nothing more."

Aksha Fernandez comes from India where she trained and worked as an architect. She later studies shoe design in Milan, Italy and is now based in London where she set up her eponymous women's footwear label in 2011. The shoes are designed in London and handcrafted in collaboration with some of the best artisan shoemakers in the Veneto region, Italy.
