I travelled down to Brighton today for some research and accidentally fell asleep on the beach and  burnt my face in the bonkers sunshine.   I stayed up most of the night torturing myself watching Glastonbury on iplayer, unable to rest with agitated energy like a child knowing its missing out on what's going on.  But I did go outside for a cigarette in the early hours and had to stand barefoot I'm my flooded garden, so I shut my eyes and it almost felt as if I was in the fields.  IMAGINATION.
So back to Brighton.........here is boutique "Last" set up by my cordwainer friend Alex Herdman.  It is a specialist shoe and accessories shop selling a mixture of international designers and local Brighton practitioners.  Alex is a fashion-fetishist for hosiery, and has invested dedicated energy into sourcing a comprehensive range of weird and wonderful socks, tights, garters, girdles and suspender belts.  She also offers a bespoke service to design shoes specific to your own choice of shape and leathers.  With a few fittings required the whole process takes aprox 6 weeks and prices start at £500.
