The Journey

Designer Q&A by Otte NYC

AE100 Portraits in Style & Culture

My talented hubby, painter and beloved teacher, Ricky Mujica, and I are honored to be included in the Allen Edmonds 100. We got to be photographed together by the iconic photographer Billy Kidd, along with 98 other NY-based creatives, icons-in-the-making, representing a passion for our crafts, and celebrating 100 years of theĀ artisan handmade shoes at Allen Edmonds. I also just happen to have grown up in Wisconsin, where AE still makes their shoes today. Link below to see our portrait in the catalog, me wearing my favorite HH piece.
