One day Charlotte had a dream…and that dream was to make Bridal Footwear!
Charlotte Mills graduated from the prestigious Cordwainers with a BA Hons in Product Design & Development for the Fashion Industry.
For her final degree show, Charlotte created a bridal footwear range and this is where her dream began.
Charlotte’s long term goal was to concentrate exclusively on designing bridal footwear but she needed to gain industry experience before her dream could be realised.
After gaining 8 years industry experience she is now launching a luxury bridal footwear collection.
Love hearts provide the inspiration for the 12 styles in Charlotte’s debut season, each style incorporating the theme in an individual and unique way.
The collection is made up of peep toes, sandals & court shoes with a variety of heel heights to suit every bride.
The Charlotte Mills shoe brand provides a fresh look to bridal footwear using a range of laser cutting, appliqué and embroidery to create unique styling in White, Ivory, Silver and Champagne.
Each shoe is handmade in Spain using finest materials such as Italian Kid Suede, silks, mesh or metallic and pearlised leathers and is embellished with large structured bows, embroideries, appliqués or Swarovski crystals.
The finishing touch is a silver sixpence in the sock with the leather sole embossed with the phrase
“Something old, Something new, Something borrowed, Something blue and a silver sixpence in her shoe.”
The Collection is launched in April and will feature 12 styles, 7 of which which have been released…
Sandal with straps looping around to create a heart shape, each strap is covered in swarovski crystals.
Mix of white pearl leather and silver metallic dusted suede with silver buckle and Swarovski crystals

Thanks ever so much to Charlotte for sharing this stunning introductory collection.
She hopes each bride will fall in Love with their wedding shoes and they will be a keepsake of their special day to treasure forever.
I think the inscription on the sole of the shoe, and the included sixpence is something incredibly special.
The shoes are beautifully constructed and fashion forward but also embracing tradition too.
