Tell us about the design process.
It was a very collaborative process that included all members of our team. Kyle Blackmon, our designer, had several sessions with Brianna Fano of SwatchHub, an embellishment and embroidery studio that’s based in NYC. Together, they developed the shape, colors, and design for the stunning kneecap embellishment. We decided to use more specialized lead-free beading instead of sequins to keep our materials as ethical as possible. Kyle also developed the Sylth heel which was inspired by shapes and movement found in dance and nature. It’s a head-turner, for sure!
