The author

Creative professional with over 10 years experience within the fashion and retail industry.

After graduating in 2013 from QUT with a Bachelor of Mass Communication, I found it extremely overwhelming and difficult to find a job that aligned with my skills and creative abilities.

In 2015, I launched my first sandal label 'Hannelli Sandals'. I am not a designer by trade, but I am continually inspired by fashion and design and wanted to test my abilities. My creative eye kicked in, and I had an 'aha' moment where I started designing sandals on paper which I translated onto Microsoft Powerpoint to send to my manufacturer (I am enrolled in Graphic Design so I can learn how to properly use appropriate programs). The logistics of running a small business from home without any financial help led to the unfortunate closure of Hannelli Sandals. Although I felt like I failed, I have no regrets as I have proved that I am a capable designer with so much to offer the creative industry.

Project details

Overview

Inspired by ethnic, embellished and exotic styles, HANNELLI sandals were created to add a touch of glamour to every summer outfit. The ethos behind Hannelli was to make the sole of the sandals flattering and timeless, as well as comfortable so that they can we worn everyday. The small collection of sandals tests the imagination thanks to unique fashion forward styles. Styles range from strappy and open-toes which are suitable for daytime dressing, while the gladiator inspired designs are perfect for evening ensembles. Each pair make a statement, whether it’s lace ups with dangling silver tassels or slip ons that are adorned with coloured tassels.
