SLOW THINGS DOWN | SHARE THE LOVE | DO IT YOUR WAY
Dear Frances is an award winning footwear label, born in the heart of London and made by hand with the highest quality leathers and materials in the Vigevano region of Northern Italy. Redefining classics for the modern woman, Dear Frances designs are characterised by timeless silhouettes, fine texture warm tones.
At Dear Frances we strive to create premium quality, modern classics for our customers. We work closely with our team of artisan shoemakers in Italy, utilizing sustainable materials and processes to develop a new kind of luxury - a luxury that seeks to slow the fashion cycle, a luxury that focuses on craftsmanship and a luxury that helps to increase the integrity of our fashion choices.
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.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Dear Frances world.
