Amber explores the boundaries between art and design under her own label Amber Ambrose Aurèle. She’s got two master’s degrees: one in shoe design from ArtEZ in Arnhem and one in art history from the University of Amsterdam. Her academic background is what makes her research unique, it resembles her vision on aesthetics and design. With her designs, she does not follow trends but makes shoes that are strongly rooted in concepts. She’s constantly questioning the status quo, such as that of the femme fatale and the femme fragile. Next to her work as a designer, she works as a teacher at several art academies in The Netherlands and China. www.amberambroseaurele.com
Ever since her studies in graphic design at the Royal College in The Hague, Liza Snook collects anything and everything that has something to do with shoes. To share this passion with the world, she started the website www.virtualshoemuseum.com together with her partner Taco Zwaanswijk in 2004. For ten years now, she has been designing exhibitions around shoes that are involved in art and design by collaborating with museums worldwide. Next to that, she works closely together with Workman Publishers in New York, is a regular judge at international design schools and helps young designers find their way.
