In October 2004, whilst working in Sydney, the idea of habbot was born … on a morning walk around centennial park with my friend Inez to be precise! I still have the note book to prove it … one of many MANY notebooks filled with special habbot ideas, (and a few not so special!)  It’s very funny to look back on the ideas I carried out … and those I didn’t! (A cafe cum vintage shoe library … I don’t think so Annie!)

It took me 5 years to build up enough knowledge and confidence to start my habbot project, but 10 years of spending most of my waking hours thinking about the next best shoe I could possibly make is something to be celebrated I say!

habbot are proud supporters of th​is year's​ The Design Files Open House. We're very excited to be designing a capsule of shoes based on an interpretation of TDF Open House colour palette, for the team to wear during the event.

Once a year The Design Files team fits out a house in Melbourne with their favourite locally designed furniture, homewares and lighting, artwork by talented Australian artists and much more; with each and every item for purchase on the spot! 
This year​ they're taking it up a notch ​by custom design​ing​ and buil​ding​ ​the Open House themselves, within the footprint of ​a ​rather large split-level warehouse in Collingwood​.​ 
It's an event unlike any other in Melbourne and one not to miss, so set aside the 4-7 December to visit TDF Open House.

Opening the envelope to Summer 2014

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

With a drum roll and orchestrated pause, we’re opening the envelope to our Summer 2014 collection, inspired by the timeless love of stationery items.

The colour palette and detailing of the collection can be seen in any treasured stationery collection and includes desert, silver, silver glitter, brown, black, gold and elephant, with neon detailing.

Now more than ever, putting pen to paper is an act of self-expression and just like handwriting is an extension of one’s self, so too are the shoes we wear.

Over the coming weeks we’ll be celebrating those who have put pen to paper and enlightened our lives with their words.

To begin, we’ve selected a favourite quote from novelist and short story writer F. Scott Fitzgerald.




New store celebration

Thursday, September 25, 2014

Friends of habbot gathered at our new store in the Strand Melbourne to drink, eat and talk some serious shoe business. It was a wonderful opportunity to show off our beautiful new store designed by the very talented Fiona Lynch. 

What a week

Sunday, September 07, 2014

The past week has been a very busy one for us, not only opening our new store at The Strand Melbourne and enjoying the associated festivities, but this on top of an exciting schedule at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week.

The week began with me presenting at the ‘MSFW: Industry day’ event, alongside other fashion industry leaders and entrepreneurs such as Karin Upton Baker, Karen Webster, Yasmin Sewell, Jodie Fox, Nahji Chu, Liz sunshine and others.

Later that evening, I spoke again at another fantastic MSFW occasion, this time at the Melbourne-Milano sister city dinner held at The European on spring street for businesses with Italian connections.
On Thursday evening our spring styles graced the runway during the Megan Park segment of the third designer series. 

By the time Saturday rolled around and we opened the doors to our third habbot store I was well and truly ready for a champagne! I look forward to sharing images of our beautiful new space designed by Fiona Lynch, one of Melbourne’s leading interior designers very soon, but not before I’ve taken a moment to catch my breath!
