My name is Ardranna and for the last year I have been working on starting my business which is called Kismet Shoes Boutique! Our main goal is to empower women who wear larger than average shoe sizes. The fashion industry has made progress in accepting other shapes and sizes. Alas, that progress hasn’t made a big impact when it comes to the shoe industry. Shopping while existing outside of fashion norms is disheartening. Without spaces that celebrate your uniqueness, the desire to use fashion as self expression is diminished. Kismet can create that space with shoes designed just for this niche market by a member of the same market. I really hope that with this business I would be able to inspire new fashion possibilities, spark enthusiasm within this forgotten community and maybe even ignite a new love of acquiring the perfect shoe.
