Dear Frances is an award winning London based label. Their use of textural materials combined with clean silhouettes creates a beautifully distinctive mood, which has captured the attention of international press and celebrities. Their seasonal collections bring a fresh elegance and modern strength and offer a unique and sophisticated approach to texture and colour.
After studying in London, designer Jane Frances gained experience working for luxury designers in Europe and then took up an internship at a family-owned Italian footwear factory. Here she trained in the artisan craft of footwear design under the guidance of her celebrated teacher and mentor. Today, Dear Frances shoes are still made by hand at the same factory, using beautiful Italian leathers and wonderful textured materials. Timeless and elegant, yet strong and independent, Dear Frances brings a unique and fresh approach to footwear design.
The label has featured in a number of industry publications, including Vogue.com, Vogue Italia, Elle UK, Marie Claire, Tank, AnOther Magazine, Elle Spain, L’Officiel and Prestage, among others. Dear Frances is the current recipient of the prestigious Joe Meltzer Award for design excellence, sponsored by the British Footwear Association.
