“For me my shoes will always be about more than just a product,” says Shaherazad, who works with a metalworker in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter to craft the designs.

“By design and ethos, Shoes by Shaherazad empower women to make a difference.”

The designer – who was recognised as an “exceptional British talent” in the Footwear Friends Annual Awards – is now looking to develop the collection further with new lines.

“These shoes are all about empowering yourself and empowering others,” said Shaherazad.

“A She-Boss who treats herself to my shoes is also helping someone living in poverty to gain a chance to become a she-boss too,” she said.
