Shoe designer Milly Jupp will be the latest local craftswoman to display her work at NNDC’s Tourist Information Centre in Cromer.
Milly has made shoes for pop star Kylie Minogue and former model Jodie Marsh, and won the coveted Footwear Designer of the Year in 2015, with Finalist status in 2016.
Whether your dream is a pair of Ginger Bread Booties or Ming Dynasty Teapot heels, her wearable fantastical shoes are taking the UK by storm. And now she has designed Cromer-themed shoe clips for sale exclusively in the Tourist Information Centre, including a clip sporting a Cromer crab.
Milly said: “It’s been an amazing couple of years and it’s very important to me to keep a strong link with the community I’m part of in Norfolk.
“Making a shoe clip for Cromer seems exactly the right thing to do – a souvenir that is unconventional but that can be worn easily. I hope residents and visitors enjoy them and that having my shoes in Cromer Tourist Information Centre will encourage people to follow their creative dreams.”
Milly’s new shop All About Shoes is in St Benedict’s Street, Norwich where she went to Norwich City College. She is also a sought-after motivational speaker to encourage young people to try something new, and was the Inspirational Speaker for Schools and Inspiring the Future speaker in 2016.
Cllr Nigel Dixon, NNDC Cabinet Member for Business & Economic Development and Tourism, said: “North Norfolk District Council is delighted to be able to host Milly J Shoes at our Cromer Tourist Information Centre. Milly is an incredibly gifted Norfolk craftswoman and entrepreneur, and we hope others will be inspired by her creations and her story.”
