Sophie Cox Biography
Sophie Cox had an unusual beginning for a footwear designer, she grew up in either riding boots or bare feet for long Australian summers. With a curious disposition and a practical streak her path to fashion was far from glamorous:
"I was one of only a handful of female student in a four year industrial design course! In that time I came to see the relationship between shoes and design innovation and in my final year I invented a shoe that flipped from a flat to a high heel. I was hailed as a young inventor but what I really wanted to create was fashion that felt good, beauty you could walk in..."Before she graduated from the London College of Fashion in 2009, Cox won the Drapers Student footwear designer of the year award and then went on to work for British luxury shoe designer Georgina Goodman.
