Charlotte Olympia is a footwear designer who takes retro styling and gives it a modern twist.
Her creations are made up of the tallest heels, wild animal prints and brightest colors. She carries a 1940's vibe within her styling.
While attending the London College of Fashion she found her calling in shoe design.
Once she realized her that her heart was in designing shoes Charlotte enrolled and graduated from Cordwainer College, which is now a part of the London College of Fashion.
Charlotte Olympia Dellal is from a prominent family of London real estate developers. Her mother Andrea Dellal is a former muse of Valentino's.
Olympia's sky-high double-platform heels are more than show stoppers, they also tend to have a sense humor.
With lips or kitty cats there is always something whimsical and cute on her shoes.
Charlotte has been quoted saying, "I think my shoes are classic with a modern silhouette and a feminine touch."
Ms. Olympia launched her label in 2006 once she graduated. Her first store opened in July 2010 in Mayfair, London.
All of her shoes are handmade in Italy. They are completed with her
signature spider web on the soles of the shoes.
Her signature web is based on the children's novel "Charlotte's Web" A book she read and loved as a child.
The aforementioned high heels Queen, partner up with the humorous and fashion-savvy handbag designer,
Olympia Le Tan.
It was an ideal match. Olympia Le Tan is known for her attention-grabbing clutch bags, which resemble, or look identical a book.
When Charlotte hooked up with Tan she became inspired by her brand’s signature spider-web logo. She created a clutch that resembles E.B. White’s children’s book “Charlotte’s Web.”
Her footwear was not to be neglected and the collaboration between these two women resulted in the classic Charlotte Olympia ‘Dolly’ heel embroidered with words as ‘terrific’ and ‘radiant.’ A perfect way to uplift your mood and to remind us that fashion as life should not be taken so seriously.
