What an amazing opportunity.

The Duchess of Cambridge (who is not known for adventurous shoe choices!) will be heading to De Montfort University in Leicester, England with Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip on March 8th.  During her visit, Kate will have the opportunity to launch one lucky designers career!!!  She will judge six sketches by aspiring designers at the school and then choose her favourite.  The shoe will be made exclusively for The Duchess.

Designing a brand new shoe for the most photographed woman on the planet…   AWESOME!!!

Below are the 6 finalist and there designs.  Can’t wait till March 8 when the winner is announced!!!
