Originating from Nigeria, West Africa, Marion studied at Cordwainers College and later worked with Italian Artisans for over 10 years.
“I think of my shoes as statement pieces, interesting, attractive and relatively eye-catching wardrobe items that reflect a woman’s personality, usually quite bold and unique. The signature ‘Love Marion’ label MA is widely used on shoe buckles and name plates for handbags. It seemed a befitting tribute to my beloved father who addressed postcards, birthday cards and letters to me using this exact symbol.”
“The Jiggs pump from AW06.”
THE COLLECTION: ’SANCTIFIED’ is inspired by Marion’s journey to the ancient city of Jerusalem. From its natural surroundings to lampshades, vases, jars and lanterns, the unique middle-eastern city influences the rich colour palette of the collection.
FAVOURITE COLLECTION TO DATE:
“It’s difficult to choose a favourite, however references have been made to my SS02 collection titled ‘Gardenia Passion.’”
