Shayna Kulik: Footwear Trends In Buenos Aires
The mind behind Pattern Pulp shares her discoveries from a recent trip to South America.
My first job in New York had me designing shoes. I illustrated prints for OskKosh, Lord & Taylor, Rampage, Target, you name it- if it was mass market and had a licensing deal, it probably crossed my desk. It was an education in product design, commercial pattern making, trend forecasting and a bit of office politics. As a result, I was obsessed with feet.
Everywhere I went, I’d slyly glance to see what people were wearing- in stores, on the subway, at restaurants, even in bathroom stalls…I know.
