Keep Going

It has certainly been a while since I updated you all on our progress, but it’s been an intense time. I can now say with much pride that we have a fully functioning Lucy Rose prototype in the form of the LR4. I can wear it (albeit gingerly as it’s slightly too big!) and it does the job that nearly eight years ago I wondered for the very first time whether a shoe could do!

Okay, but how?

I’m sure most of us have heard those words spoken back to us when we reveal a plan or goal whether is losing weight or launching a product. It instantly puts the fire out doesn’t it? I want to answer back in my best non-teenage voice “I don’t know HOW yet, but I will”.


I’m going to be honest with you, not a lot has happened in the past week. I went to London for a meeting on Thursday and visited the flagship stores of Chanel and Dior to dream and imagine my own brand one day having a store like theirs. The attention to detail is unparalleled and the grandeur is something that only decades of knowledge and vision can conjure.

Life’s Magic

I want to do a blog post this week on the magical coincidences of life. That space in between fate and proactivity where progress manifests. I’ve often been told, especially from my Dad that you have to meet chance halfway – you have to be in the right place at the right time for a magical moment to happen.

If you want to go far, go together:

As the saying goes, if you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together. This week I had a great meeting with a shoe consultant who has been in the industry for years. As someone new in the industry (and extremely naïve), I was worried about this meeting. I thought it could go one of two ways; either extremely positive about the concept and how she could really help me. Or feeding my doubt of how hard it’s going to be. Thankfully, it was the former.
