“I’m all about little details and hidden surprises. My favourite part is hearing and seeing firsthand the reactions from my clients when they first open their shoebox. That reaction makes all the time and effort so worth it.”
Deborah Thomson- Kakoz
Head artist Deborah Thomson-Kakoz is one of the most adorable and creative women we´ve ever met. Together with her wonderful and supportive husband Iven, she will design wedding shoes that you´ve never even dreamed of and create a very special and unique wedding memory that will last forever!
“Figgie Couture is the world’s preeminent purveyor of custom hand-painted shoes. Figgie is wearable art, a one-of-a-kind fashion statement of luxury, style, and individuality. These are a true original. Deborah Thomson is the artist behind Figgie Shoes. Since her accidental start (she started painting shoes as a favour for a friend), she received requests from people in over 40 countries all over the globe, and regularly ships products to almost every continent. More than just a number in a mass of emails, each client is important to Deborah. Each order is equally important to her, each pair of shoes is uniquely designed for them.”
