We love to see which wonderful London-based people and events that newspaper The Evening Standard cover, so we were delighted when they contacted us recently. They were keen to speak to Vevian founder Vivienne Lopez and to film our team making shoes at our factory in East London.
Vevian is the only company in the UK that uses a traditional method called ‘lasting’ to make children’s shoes, a skill that has been passed down within the hardworking team. The Evening Standard heard about this and were excited to see the workshop in action.
We had a wonderful day’s filming and were thrilled to be able to introduce the team to the readers of The Evening Standard. Also making a cameo is one of our loyal customers Phoebe, who now has three pairs of well-loved Vevian shoes. Her mother Zetta first saw the shoes in a school auction and swiftly became an advocate: “I like they are different and special… the design is very particular, not something you find just anywhere”.
