THE STORY

Challenge

“The brand was envisaged to carry the very best craftsmanship of high end yet accessible products so it was challenging finding a reputable company to manufacture such in Italy.”

- Ruth Freeman, USA Lhoradon founder

Outcome

From product development to manufacturing with ISM, LHORADON shoes have become a sensation of its kind with two distinguished designs that are art pieces on their own, crafted in top quality leather, hand-painted heels and jewellery embellishments.

Project phases

Design

Ruth provided ISM with comprehensive moodboards and high level sketches. ISM then interpreted her concepts and came up with professional sketches, including the iconic “Lady Julia” and “Ripple Apple” designs.

Fashion is not just seeing the beautiful clothes and shoes out there but what goes in and out of bringing those designs out.

Prototyping & Sampling

ISM worked on the prototype and made samples for the two styles respectively, particularly focusing on the development of the sculptural heel and jewellery embellishments.

The ISM team has been of tremendous support to the LHORADON brand right from the concept creation to the design, sample making and the final collection launch.

Production

With the complexity of the heels constructions, ISM worked closely with the artisans and hardware supplier to ensure these unique features were impeccably made, complete with high quality nappa leather and satin.
