Four of the world's top shoe designers reveal their dream careers
One of the most asked questions as a child is what do you want to be when you're older? Well, four of fashion's biggest footwear designers have revealed what they wish they could have been, or perhaps even become... if designing gets old.
"I think I would have enjoyed being a glass designer. The world of glass is rich in shapes and colours. They can be made in different sizes and materials, from vinyl to crystal, silver, pewter and wood. I would have loved to experiment with all these materials I don't usually get to use in my work."
"I would love to be a stonemason. That is because I love working with my hands. Stone is my favorite material in the world, especially volcanic stone-basalt. It is so beautiful."
"A VJ on MTV in 1983. I would be best friends with Cyndi Lauper. I would play Duran Duran and A-ha video clips every day. Music has been a constant source of inspiration for me personally and professionally. I grew up glued to 'I Want My MTV,' and it shaped the person I am today."
"An astronaut, but I'm pretty sure NASA doesn't let you smoke on the shuttle, so that's a no. But I most likely would have gone into jewellery. I very nearly studied it while I was at Central Saint Martins.
