Take a Walk in My Shoes – Visala Wong

COFA student Visala Wong’s project, Take a Walk in My Shoes, draws inspiration from the Hands That Shape Humanity message and creates an ordinary product with an extraordinary message, raising awareness of the plight of the extremely poor in China, a country where socio-economic imbalance is growing and leaving millions behind.

Handmade by Chinese artisans and adapting the technique and aesthetic of a very simple product, hand woven straw shoes, Visala creates a design which retains the integrity of her original inspiration whilst interpreting the materials and color palettes to suit contemporary taste.
