Melbourne based Phong Chi Lai, now in his 4th collection of handmade womens shoes.
Emma: My love affair with shoes began with a pair of black patent Mary-Janes when I was just 5 years old. Since that moment I have searched for the perfect shoe, one both functional and beautiful, practical and stylish.
However, disenchanted and frustrated with my search I made a life-changing decision: to learn everything I could with a view to creating my own shoes!
This decision took me to London and around Australia, to learn my craft. I came to see the most comprehensive and ‘pure’ method of shoemaking in the Italian style named ‘Lunati’. This involves first creating paper shoes and then transposing them to leather to ensure a perfect fit.
Taking ‘Lunati’ as my process and working from my studio in Melbourne, I design and make my creations by hand, with all the materials sourced in Melbourne. Leather being my tool, it is used in all my designs for the uppers, lining and soles. I carve and stack heels from leather and wood and modify resin heels.
My shoes are an expression of me, therefore the quality and workmanship involved is utmost. I aim to produce classic, yet progressive creations suitable for all.

Young Hunting is a unisex jewellery label by Melbourne designer Candice Agius. Each collection is a philosophical exploration that questions and transcends realms influenced by a thematic thought. Each jewellery piece is limited and formed in Australia from high quality materials. Young Hunting is for the rare, the intellectual and the unsharing.
The second collection in Ksubi’s ever growing footwear range.
from L. “heavenly, pertaining to the sky,
With notions of infinite galaxies and heavenly plains, the breakout label’s new range, ‘Cælestis’, takes inspiration from a primordial, intangible mother of being.
Concerned primarily with the manipulation of metals, Henson has ceased to be a jewellery label and has transformed into an alchemist of sorts- mixing minerals silver and brass with irreverent unorthodoxy and bringing light to dark places. Indeed, the label has grown from its broody beginnings and is illuminating sinister edges to offer greater accessibility to its already bloated fan base. But don’t be easily fooled- the shadowy corners still remain for die-hard Henson devotees.
From the ‘Big Dog’ constellation necklace- modelled on the actual constellation as it can be seen from the Southern Hemisphere at night- to sun dials in the form of cuffs, rings and necklaces, Henson tracks the movement of celestial objects as they pass, largely unseen, in and around us. Moon face rings mimic a sleeping planet while crystal rock pendants whisper ancient secrets and silver cuffs turn to gold as the light hits them.
