Raphael Young FINALIST'S PROFILE

What is your design philosophy?
Everything that I do, I do it to improve women's sexyness.

What makes your shoes unique?
Probably that they're hand-made by me, and that I do everything from stitch to finish! And apart from my design training, I also have a degree in physics and engineering that helps me create well-balanced shoes with perfect proportions.

Do you change your styles and materials every season?
Of course, but I do try to keep some hard-rock couture edge that has become my signature.

What is your price-point range?
$400-$1000

Which stores currently stock your shoes?
We currently have more than 20 selected stockists around the world, including H.Lorenzo in Los Angeles, Eva in New York and L'Eclaireur in Paris.
