Get to Know Emmy London Shoes

By now you may have heard that Little White Dress Bridal Shop in Denver carries wedding shoes. What you may not know yet is that these aren’t just any wedding shoes! They are some of the most exquisite, unique, and expertly crafted wedding shoes available in the world. We make a point to carry only the most talented designers at Little White Dress, and that goes for our shoe designers too. When we came across Emmy London, not only did we absolutely fall in love with the shoes, but we were also enchanted by the designer, oh-so-charmlingly-British Emmy Scarterfield. It’s really no wonder that she’s a favorite shoe designer of Kate Middleton, Claire Pettibone, and Charlie Brear.

Emmy said, ‘I’ve always had a passion for shoes. I grew up in Somerset and my village was home to super brand ‘Mulberry’, so to launch my own luxury label didn’t seem that unrealistic. One of my first memories is of putting wooden building blocks in my socks to create instant high heels!’

Following her degree at the prestigious Cordwainers College, Emmy worked for five years in Italy for some of top names in accessories including Bottega Veneta and Georgio Armani.

‘When I worked in Italy I was in a really fortunate position to work with the factory that make Manolo Blahnik shoes. The craftsmanship and accuracy of their work has always inspired me to raise the bar.’

On her return to the UK she set her sights high on her own luxury brand and as her friends started getting married, spotted a gap in the market for beautiful, elegant and feminine bridal shoes and brought her unique creative vision to the luxury wedding market. The Emmy brand has since gone from strength to strength, and after 10 years is considered to lead the way in this niche market.

The brand has received huge support from the Press, regularly receiving editorial in all the top bridal publications, from bloggers worldwide and in recent years in the mainstream Press – Emmy was recently tipped as one of the five rising stars in London as part of an article titled ‘Bespoke is the new luxury’ in The Observer.

Emmy uses vintage inspired lasts, heels and the best Spanish and Italian leathers to create classic, timeless pieces for every occasion from the perfect wedding shoes to the most comfortable courts, to show stopping party shoes. ‘My inspiration never really comes from shoes! Although I have a collection of vintage shoes that I just to base some of my last shapes on, I’m really drawn to architecture, I love the structure of windows and doors and the repetition of tiling. Plus jewellery and insects play a big part in the detailing.’

These gorgeous designs are created for you by top craftsmen in our dedicated workshop, using skills passed down the generations to produce Emmy’s complex designs perfectly each time. Emmy’s signature hand beaded decorations add a touch of decadent luxury. Swarovski crystal, Mother of Pearl shell and silk satins are used to embellish the shoes and create stunning and unique accessories.

Each shoe is hand finished with Emmy’s gorgeous branding and a Swarovski crystal on the sole, brides often choose a blue crystal for their traditional something blue. Shoes and hair decorations are packaged like presents with Emmy’s signature ribbon and crystal boxes, with a shoe bag and care card included to help you keep your shoes looking perfect for years to come.

Introducing Emmy London Shoes!

Emmy London Francesca Shoes

Little White Dress Bridal Shop in Denver has been selected to be the exclusive retailer for Emmy London in Colorado and one of the first retailers of Emmy Shoes in the United States. According to owner Cate Malone, “Brides want shoes that are just as special as their wedding dress, and for years I have been asked where to find unique and beautiful wedding shoes. The addition of Emmy London shoes to the Little White Dress collection provides the perfect compliment to our bridal gowns and fulfills this desire to find wedding day shoes more exquisite than anything available online or in a department store.”

Emmy London, designed and crafted by artisans in a specialty workshop in London, include signature hand beaded decorations, vintage inspired heels, and the best Spanish and Italian leathers. Swarovski crystal, Mother of Pearl shell, and silk satins add a touch of decadent luxury to these heirloom-quality shoes.

Designer Emmy Scarterfield gained her expertise in accessories by working in Italy for Bottega Veneta, Georgio Armani, and in the factory that makes Manolo Blahnik shoes. After returning to the UK she noticed the gap in the market for elegant bridal shoes and brought her creative vision to the luxury wedding market. Throughout the past 10 years, Emmy London shoes have been applauded in the press and have been adored by stylish society women and celebrities. Emmy London designs bespoke shoes and accessories for The Duchess of Cambridge, her sister Pippa Middleton, and her mother Carole Middleton, including designing the mother of the bride’s shoes for the royal wedding.

After years of success in the UK, Emmy London launched her bridal collection in the United States in 2014. Little White Dress Bridal Shop was chosen as one of the few specialty retailers of Emmy London shoes in the United States. These beautiful shoes will be arriving this summer at Little White Dress!

The Grant-Humphreys Mansion, built in 1902 for Colorado’s third governor, was the perfect setting to showcase the light, ethereal, and subtly glamorous style of wedding gowns by Claire Pettibone and Jenny Packham. We are thrilled to share the beautiful images from Meghan Savage Photography of this soft and pretty styled shoot with gowns and accessories from Little White Dress Bridal Shop.

Gatsby Glamour at Little White Dress Bridal Shop

Brides and industry taste-makers are abuzz this season about the resurgence of glam vintage looks from the 1920s and 1930s, a style we absolutely adore here at Little White Dress. From the hit British-import show Downton Abbey to the Hollywood remake of The Great Gatsby, these Art Deco influences are playing a major role in bridal fashion trends. The New York Times recently featured this bridal style – highlighting one of our favorite designers, Jenny Packham – and we’ve been noticing lately that many brides are coming to Little White Dress specifically seeking out gowns with the Gatsby-era look. We think this is one instance of a trend that is absolutely timeless – after all, it’s been around for almost a century!

Luckily for brides who love that glamorous, romantic style, we just welcomed two of the most stunning gowns EVER at Little White Dress Bridal Shop. The “Esme” gown by Jenny Packham gracefully captures Art Deco sophistication and charm. Esme’s sleeved sister is “Tuberose,” a delicately beaded and incredibly romantic gown, also by Jenny Packham. We think both new arrivals are perfect for brides looking for an alluring and enchanting wedding dress.

Several other gowns and designers available at Little White Dress beautifully embody the essence of old-world glamour and grace. Elizabeth Fillmore’s sleek and silky dresses would be stunning on a bride looking for a modern incarnation of Prohibition-era elegance, and Claire Pettibone’s delicate details would wonderfully complement a wedding with a touch of antique style.

Miriam Haskell accessories, also available at Little White Dress, provide the perfect finishing touches for this look. The jewelry and accessories company, which opened its first boutique in 1926 during the heyday of Art Deco influence, today still hand-makes many of the same designs from the 1920s and 1930s.
