Tetsuya Uenobe shoes are different. Tetsuya is a Japanese designer who creates shoes as ‘wearable art’. He graduated BTEC Professional Development Certificate in Design (Footwear/ Accessories) at Cordwainers at London College of Fashion in June/ 2001. Before then, he was employed as a Merchandiser for men’s footwear and leather accessories of a mail order company in Japan.
‘When I design a shoe I think about it as a sculpture to wear, an art piece you live with. You and your body affect its look and it affects yours. Footwear should have its life with and without being on the feet, on the contrary to cloths that exist only when being worn’.
Designer Kobi Levi specializes in designing unusual footwer that crosses the line between fashion and art.
