Having the opportunity to design your dream shoes is the pinnacle of joy for the footwear obsessive. Joker’s Closet, a company launched this year by Toronto-based entrepreneur Ashely Ebner, allows women to do just that. Customers choose from a curated selection of colours and textures and apply them to one of six designs to create one-of-a-kind shoes.
The latest news from Joker’s Closet is an exclusive collaboration with Korean designer Lie Sang Bong, which launches at Paris Fashion Week tomorrow. Together they’ve created the first designer-customized capsule collection, Lie Sang Bong x Joker’s Closet, which will be presented at Bong’s prêt-a-porter collection as well as at Seoul Fashion Week later this month. The collaboration includes shoes with customized colour and texture placement on items from the Joker’s Closet Spring 2014 line”Lie Sang Bong is one the most important and inspiring global fashion brands of our time. This collaboration not only offers a new interpretation of Joker’s Closet’s vision, but changes the way the fashion industry perceives fashion footwear by incorporating co-design and customization,” says Ebner.
