Breaking the cultural and design norms in Egypt, designer Jayda Hany creates innovative heels that are unusually eye-catching. Being an Architectural Engineering student at the American University in Cairo, Hany moved to London after graduation and entered London College of Fashion for footwear design.

The designer believes that it's crucial for designers to make use of the everyday technology that surrounds us. “I have always viewed a shoe as a mobile structure that is carrying the human body. I noticed the strong relationship between my past profession as an architect, footwear, and fashion as a whole,” she explains. Her brand uses advanced 3D technology, along with handcrafted techniques, to create these contemporary masterpieces. Hany aims to create these state-of-the-art shoes with practicality and design, honouring the consumer’s intelligence.
