Laura Bailey: I love my L.K.Bennett team
Laura Bailey "relished" the chance to channel her "passions and desires" in her latest collaboration.
The British star has made a name for herself in the modelling world posing for the likes of Guess Jeans, Temperley London and Bella Freud, as well as being a fashion writer and cultural ambassador for the British Fashion Council.
Her latest venture is a 11-piece shoe line with brand L.K.Bennett, which launched in the UK last month. It was an ideal opportunity for Laura and she thrived working alongside the label.
"I love the teamwork and apprenticeship of collaboration, and took faith and inspiration from the very first meetings with the team, whose technical and marketing expertise I leaned on, whilst relishing the freedom they gave me to be true to my passions and desires," she smiled to the Hollywood Reporter. "We worked hard and fast from the earliest mood boards through the sampling process to the shoot, and it's thrilling now to see my collection on the feet of the women I love."
Laura admits she can't resist a good challenge and enjoyed bringing her personal style to the range. Some of the footwear on offer includes white Virna flat sandals with blue and yellow straps and the red and navy zigzag Silvana heel with an ankle buckle.
Asked about her own favourite pair of shoes worn on the red carpet, Laura recalled a recent choice.
"Charlotte Olympia glitter platform heels to the Oscars 2015, with navy lace Chanel Couture," she gushed. "The ultimate party shoe for Hollywood and beyond. I knew which shoes I'd wear before I even thought about a dress."
