Dear Frances

Dear Frances is the brainchild of London-based designer Jane Frances. After graduating from the London College of Fashion and ModaPelle Academy in Milan, Jane apprenticed at a family-owned Italian footwear factory, where she learned the technical art of Italian craftsmanship under the guidance of famed shoe designer Gianpietro Papa. Traveling frequently between Milan and Paris, Jane acquired a penchant for beautiful materials and clean, modern lines. Today, Dear Frances shoes are still crafted by hand at the same factory with Papa on the production team.
