DESIGNERS INSPIRE #3: CHIE MIHARA

CHIE MIHARA IS MY WONDER SHOE WOMAN. SHE EASED FROM ONE GREAT EXPERIENCE IN THE SHOE DESIGN ARENA TO THE OTHER, AND HER WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE HAS LED HER TO CREATE THE BOMB SHOE EPONYMOUS LINE.   MIHARA WAS BORN IN PORTO ALEGRE, BRASIL IN 1968, HER PARENTS BOTH JAPANESE. SHE STUDIED FASHION DESIGN IN KYUSHYU DESIGN GAKKUINA AND WORKED FOR JUNKO KOSHINO AS A DESIGN ASSISTANT. AFTER HER MIGRATION TO NYC, SHE STUDIED AT F.I.T. AND HELD AN INTERNSHIP AT ENESLOW, AN ORTHOPEDIC SHOE STORE. HER STRUCTURAL KNOWLEDGE OF THE FOOT AND ITS PROBLEMS ALLOWS HER TO CREATE BEAUTIFUL, UNIQUE AND COMFORTABLE SHOES.  I NOTICED THAT WITH MIHARA'S SHOES, IT'S MORE ABOUT THE DETAILS OF THE DESIGN THAT ELEVATE THE SHOE, AND IT'S A DEFINITE PLUS THAT DONT LOOK TOO COMFORTABLE, LOL. IF YOU'RE FINANCIALLY LACKING LIKE ME,  JUST USE MIHARA'S CREATIONS AS INSPIRATION FOR YOUR NEXT TRIP TO STEVE MADDEN OR THE THRIFT SHOP. AND FOR YOU REMAINING RICH ASSES, JUST COP THE SHOES SO I CAN LIVE VICARIOUSLY TROUGH YOU, LOL.
