I’ve worked with Artemis Design Co. in the past and have nothing but great things to say about this company. Millicent, the owner, does a fantastic job of sourcing her footwear from the finest materials ensuring each pair is truly one of a kind. Her IG page is so dreamy and worth following just for the insta-stories on her trips to Istanbul.
I had uniforms growing up but my school allowed us to wear whatever shoes we wanted to so I saw that as a major loophole for expressing my style. I owned every color converse – the crazier the better. Since then I’ve always been a fan of “statement shoes”, and really find that they add a lot of personality into an outfit. For someone like me who tends to dress more classic, these shoes take an otherwise normal outfit and bring it to the next level.
Now owning two pairs from Artemis, I can attest to the serious style they bring to my wardrobe. They’re beautifully eye catching and attract a lot of compliments from strangers. I love telling them the story of these shoes on how they are ethnically made in Turkey by women using materials of their culture such as silk, kilim rugs, & raffia. Knowing the backstory deepens your connection to a brand and make them stand out even more in your closet.
If you have already, check out Artemis Design Co., I highly recommend it!
