Manolo Blahnik described her as the “future of footwear,” she’s been nominated twice as accessory designer of the year by the BFC and launched her own label in 2003: Georgina Goodman is an underground icon to know. Having begun her career as a fashion editor at i-D magazine during the late 80s (“I knew Edward Enninful when he was a teenager - he would be sitting at my kitchen table asking me about how to get into fashion”), she then later undertook an MA in womenswear footwear at the Royal College of Art. Fast forward to Paris, 2007. Goodman was in her showroom when a Gucci group headhunter pops in to see her. “Lee McQueen would like to meet you…” This moment was a defining point, and she went on to create iconic shoes for his catwalk collections up until his death, including McQueen’s famous ‘Armadillo shoe’ part of his very last collection – Plato’s Atlantis – to heels carved in the form of angels. Eight years on, Georgina talks exclusively to HUNGER about her Cinderella story, the art of collaboration and poignant memories of McQueen. Read more here.Georgina Goodman Alexander McQueen Alien Shoe
