Ming Ray: "My grandmother was born in a time in China when women still had their feet bound in order to please men. Hearing her talk about it when I was a little girl made an indelible impact on me. I have vowed to never make a pair of shoes that are merely beautiful, they must also make you feel good.
I love Haute Couture, I also love the Japanese pop culture of Kawaii. And I so loved working at Alexander McQueen and Jimmy Choo. But something was missing for me, and I found it by designing my own collection whose main inspiration I call Haute Cute."
