Shoe Love is True Love– Anonymus
And that’s what our lady has in mind. We are talking about none other than Radhika Jain who is all set to take the shoe industry by storm. When I met her, the first question I asked her was why shoe designing? Why not fashion designing? The lady spoke about her affection with footwear and we can’t agree more! The young entrepreneur said ‘Ever since I came out of school, I had entrepreneurship in mind and wanted to venture into a creative field’. That’s when she went to London College of Fashion (Cordwainers), UK to learn footwear design from an international perspective. Even after coming to India, she continued to hone her knowledge on the peculiarities of footwear designing, and completed her post graduation in Footwear Technology from Footwear Design and Development Institute (FDDI), Noida and Mewar University respectively. She additionally learnt Online Retail for Fashion Business from LCF, UK. All of this education coupled with a rich practical work experience in India and Italy lent her the spirit to start on her own.

Fashion is not only about donning great clothes but about style and comfort too. When we were asked to do a fashion post for Coolpad we were confused as to where to go! Somewhere there is style, somewhere there is comfort. It’s important to keep the fashion graph high but not at the stake of choosing between comfort and style.
So we decided to go to 2 different destinations of the fashion world – a brand and a designer. A brand would always have options across various styles while a designer will have different lines.
