Thorn heel court shoe
Makkonen re-evaluates and challenges the traditional silhouette of a high heel in the context of contemporary fashion in her collection 2011. Her aim was to play with the small surface of a high heel, by introducing sculptural forms, to create compelling shapes above the last surface. The design process was based on studio practice and three-dimensional experimentation.
This aspect had a strong influence on the final outcome allowing the designs to develop as the process progressed.
