Anyi Lu was inspired to create her eponymous fashion footwear brand after her sister's wedding. After choosing the dress with ease, finding a beautiful shoe that the bride could wear all day was almost impossible. Guided by one simple principle 'that women's shoes should be functional as well as fashionable 'Anyi Lu was born. The designer's mission was to create a line of "couture-quality" shoes that were not only a delight to look at, but a delight to wear too. Lu's background as an engineer, combined with a passion for ballroom dancing, has been crucial to the success of her eponymous brand. Bringing her engineer's problem-solving skills to all her designs, Lu also looks to dancing shoes' movement, flexibility and stability for inspiration. As a result, Anyi Lu heels are not only elegant and sophisticated, they're also comfortable enough to wear all day and night.
