After studying furniture design and sculpture in London and Milan, Jane Frances took an internship at a family run footwear factory in Italy. It was during that time that she developed a deep passion for shoe design and production. The realization that there was a void in the market for versatile, high quality shoes was the catalyst behind the start of her own label. In just a couple of years since her launch in 2014, London based Dear Frances has quickly become a go-to for women looking for classically designed footwear with a unique and modern twist. The heels of suede boots, for example, feature slices of translucent lucite stacked between beechwood. And leather mules have real dried flowers embedded in their heels. As for production? The entire collection is produced at the same factory where she first fell in love with the artisan craft of shoemaking.
