Chau Har Lee

Chau Har Lee 's creations are the demonstration of how the design object becomes almost fetishied, in this way the shoes work as both sculptural, aesthetic pieces and functional footwear.
She has introduced materials such as steel, acrylic and wood to contrast with the softer, stretched and moulded leather by three-dimensionally building up using rapid-prototyping and laser cutting to create architectual structures.
Chau Har Lee tried to create a tension between masculinity and femininity in her shoes, making objects that have strength and power but are still intensely desirable.
