Today I am excited to share the work of talented artist and designer, Helen Little. She is the founder and creator of Laura Britt Shoes. ( They are named after her two daughters). Helen digitally designs beautiful artwork onto canvas , which are screen printed onto tennis shoes. She has an amazing story and journey behind her work!
In 1994 Helen suffered a life threatening stroke, and was plagued with not being able to walk and other disabilities. Her faith in God, and the love and support of her family helped her fully recover. The stroke was a life changing experience for Helen in many ways. She came out on the other side , with a talent not known to her before. She was able to imagine and create amazing designs for fashionable footwear. Her doctor informed her that some people receive a talent after suffering brain trauma.
This past June, I was honored to be invited by Helen, along with 4 other Seattle fashion bloggers, to participate in a commercial campaign for Laura Britt Shoes. I had a great time and loved the chance to help get the word out about this wonderful brand. View the commercial here.( by Lyrel Media)
There are 5 different designs available on the website. I Hope you will invest in a pair, they are fun to wear, stylish, and support a great cause. If you are a Seahawks fan, you will want a pair of the stadiums to show off your twelves spirt in blue and green!
1) French Gabby:
2) Vintage Susan:
3) Mid Century-Geometric
6) Stadium( Available in 4 different options)
I am blessed to call Helen friend. I actually met her in the airport two years ago, on my way back from a fashion trade show in Vegas. Helen was returning from their also, we struck up a conversation and found out we have lots in common. It was exciting to help her out with this campaign.
