After years of searching for luxury footwear with no success; Eleanor Anukam, a size 12 herself, embarked on a journey to create an eponymous line of luxury women’s plus size shoes to service this underserved population of women with shoe sizes over 10.
“I’m designing for a fashion forward lady with broadened global influences with a thirst to disrupt fashion.” Eleanor Anukam states. I envision a style that is sexy, modern, and feminine.
Supported by the finest manufacturing resources in Brazil, Eleanor sources the most exquisite leathers and hardware handcrafted by master cobblers.
Eleanor was born in Houston, Texas, raised in Lagos, Nigeria. She went on to travel the world with her parents and siblings. The sights, eclecticism, multi-cultural aesthetics and ideas that Eleanor saw on her travels heightened her sense of style which in-turn help develop her signature design style.
Eleanor describes herself as simple, but complicated. A stickler for detail, despite her laid back and friendly demeanor. She has committed to creating shoes that will envelope and adorn a woman’s foot making her feel unstoppable as she fearlessly pounds the city pavements.
