The popular footwear designer Tabitha Simmons is known for her ability to wear many hats: stylist, designer, mother, and once-upon-a-time model. Tabitha's glamorous shoes are an industry favorite. Handmade in Italy, collections are inspired by her friends – they’ve been spotted on everyone from Alexa Chung to Miranda Kerr – and are notable for their decadent embellishments and punky silhouettes. It’s whimsy, not preciousness, that Simmons is after. Oh, and comfort—which matters to this working mother.
