Laurence Dacade is a Parisian luxury accessories designer who launched her eponymous line in 2003.
Everything started when she was fourteen years old and made her first solo purchase of a pair of shoes... red and blue striped ballerinas with a big bow. Her love affair with shoes and the foot had begun.
"Shoes, like jewellery, are very sensual objects. My goal is to make shoes for Cinderella, but sexy, with a touch of the French." Dacade's shoes are sexy and elegant while being chic, but never boring.
Laurence is inspired by the cultures of women throughout the world. Since she travels extensively, her favourite place to contemplate a new collection is at airports and train stations, observing people as the move through their lives.
Wanting to master the technical aspects of designing shoes, Laurence trained at the AFPIC School. Her understanding of construction as well as her passion for feminine, sensual shoes, has enabled her to produce shoes that are sexy and comfortable at the same time. According to Laurence there "no need to suffer for beauty".
