When Tabitha Simmons first started designing shoes she was inspired to create something that women would really want to wear. Now at the helm of her global brand, the former model turned stylist has made a business out of giving women exactly what they want.
To coincide with her interview inside Issue 7 of Industrie Magazine, we asked Tabitha to tell us about the ‘stuff’ that helps make her brand.

The day is best started by…taking my children to school followed by a ballet lesson.
I stay ahead of the game thanks to my… work ethic.
The item that best captures my style mantra… would be one of my designs; either the flat pointed Belfy from the AW14 collection or the Tinsley or Calista Victorian bootie.
I get the most inspiration out of… travelling, my surroundings and my English upbringing.
The shoes I always wear on a plane are my… Early Boot or Alexa flat.
This week’s #MySelfie comes from the beautiful Anja Rubik, the model turned founder and editor of 25 Magazine.
