Sky, what does the brand Jimmy Choo evoke for you ?

Well, it’s been around ever since I was a kid. My mum wore it so I guess I relate it sort of to my mum, being a woman. More so than girl, I feel like, it’s the essential high heel for women. A few things you know, my mum had them growing up. So I wore them around when I was a little kid. I’d go through her closest, wear her clothes, wear her high heels. My shoes would be this small and hers would be this big. And then I don’t know, suddenly I woke up and I’m wearing them doing this.

Are you more of a stiletto girl or a at shoe girl ?

I think it depends how I’m feeling but most of the time I do wear ats. But you know, maybe sometimes at night or on stage or if I go to an event or something I’ll wear a heel.

Do you believe in the seductive power of shoes ?

Yeah definitely. I definitely believe in the seductive power of shoes. I feel like it’s not so much the seductive power of shoes, I feel like it’s the confidence it brings you when you wear heels or a good shoe.

Where do you usually find your inspiration ?

I think just sort of I find it everywhere. It’s something that my inspiration sort of for like music or anything comes to me randomly in my head you know ? I’ve never really had like a set way of doing things and I think that’s why its, it works because it’s always exciting, it’s always different.
