Carolin Holzhuber is an Austrian born women's shoe designer currently based between Vienna and London. After receiving her BA in Fashion at the Fashion Institute Vienna Hetzendorf (in cooperation with the University of Arts Linz), she went on to receiver her MA in Fashion Footwear at the prestigious London College of Fashion in 2014. While she did not graduate until 2014, she has been producing at least one collection per year since 2009. Every shoe Carolin designs is in itself a piece of artwork, so much so that she has been showcased in the Virtual Shoe Museum alongside more well known names as Iris Van Herpen. Her designs are meant to cause you to pause and analyse what you're seeing. Carolin feels that footwear is not all about being wearable; she uses handcrafting and sometimes innovative materials to create a luxury product. Her collection for Spring Summer 2015 was called Conjoined Illusion and was inspired by mirroring, reflection, visual illusion and conjoined twins. Carolin's latest collection XY Chromosomes for Autumn Winter 2015 takes on a bit of a darker edge; the collection maintains the spectacular architecture of its predecessors with a mainly black and red colour palette. And while the price of a pair of Carolin Holzhuber shoes is out of the range of most people (the top pair we can see will set you back £3,400), that doesn't mean that anyone and everyone can appreciate their artistry. Though if price is not issue for you, check out her online shop here. Carolin has also received a lot of attention from pretty major media outlets throughout the world including Vogue Italy, Pigeons & Peacocks Magazine and Attitude magazine, to name a few.
