Luxury shoes and accessories designer Charlotte Olympia Dellal began designing from her love of fashion and the art of corsetry.
Charlotte took her passion to Cordwainers, the world-renowned college for footwear and accessories in London. Here she was able to explore her interests alongside technical training in the craftsmanship of beautiful shoes. Soon after graduating, Charlotte pursued her love of fashion and launched her eponymous London based shoe brand in January 2008.
Charlotte Olympia designs have become synonymous with classic sophistication and meticulous attention to detail. Inspired by a bygone era of old Hollywood glamour, iconic styles such as the Dolly with its signature 'island' platform, the distinctive Kitty flats and perspex Pandora clutch box are in keeping with the brand's feminine design philosophy. All designs are handcrafted in Italy using only the finest materials and each shoe is finished with a signature gold spider's web on the sole. The brand's leopard prints, fan detailing and arresting use of colour have quickly become design classics; coveted by celebrities and stylish women alike.
The brand continues to expand its product lines to include, not only captivating heels, but also an array of flats, boots and accessories. Charlotte Olympia now develops four seasonal collections a year as well as 'Encore' - a permanent collection of signature silhouettes, 'Runaway Bride', 'To Dye For', 'Cosmic', 'Incy' and the most recently launched 'Tailor Made' bespoke service.
Charlotte Olympia enjoys a growing international retail presence of three stores in Mayfair, Manhattan and Beverly Hills as well as online and in shop-in-shops in Asia. The collections are also stocked in some of the world's most prestigious retailers including Harrods, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, On Pedder, Isetan, Printemps and Beymen.
