Joanne Stoker graduated with a masters in shoe design from Cordwainers College, London College of Fashion, and caught the eye of Jimmy Choo who gave her guidance and coaching for her first collection debut during Autumn/Winter 2010 London Fashion Week.
Her period-inspired pieces are a combination of craftsmanship and architecture, embellished with flamboyant ruffles, tassels, snakeskin patent leathers, sequins, bows, feathers and appliqués.
