Dear Frances is an award winning footwear label, based in London.
Inspired by the contrasts of fine texture, warm tones and clean symmetry, Dear Frances shoes are made by hand with the highest quality leathers and materials in the Vigevano region of Northern Italy. Their seasonal collections hold a beautifully distinctive mood and offer a uniquely refined approach to texture and colour.
After studying in London and Milan, designer Jane Frances took up an internship at a family-owned footwear factory in Italy. Here she trained in the artisan craft of footwear design under the guidance of her celebrated teacher and mentor. Today, Dear Frances shoes are still made by hand at the same factory, using the age-old techniques handed down through generations of artisan shoe makers.
Timeless and elegant, strong and independent.
Dear Frances brings a unique and fresh vision to luxury footwear design.
"Dear Frances first caught my eye when Bella Hadid stepped out wearing a pair of the Spirit boots. Kendall Jenner, Selena Gomez, Emma Roberts, and a host of other It-celebrities followed suit shortly thereafter and voila: The next must-have shoe brand was born". Nikki Ogunnaike, Elle USA
"Designer Jane Frances specializes in creating timeless, immaculately manufactured styles at a price point that’s competitive in the world of high-end footwear—particularly given the hyper-luxe fabrications, all courtesy of the family-owned Italian factory that Dear Frances has worked with since its inception".

"My middle name is Frances and my close friends have always referred to me as Jane Frances, Dear Frances is the beginning of a letter, everything that comes after the name is part of our story and our journey.
Dear Frances is for a woman who is, self-assured and elegant; has a mature approach to personal style and above all, an attractive sense of being" Jane Frances
