BEHIND THE TWISTS! INTERVIEW WITH THE FACE OF OUR AW16 BALLET PUMP COLLECTION, KARA ROSE MARSHALL
After modelling for our ballet flats us in April, we thought you would be interested to know a little bit more about fashion model, Kara Rose Marshall. She’s based in London and walked her first London Fashion Week in 2014. She posts regularly on social media and with her cool and quirky style, it’s no wonder she has almost 20 thousand followers on Instagram.
Name: Kara Rose Marshall
Hometown: Kingston upon Hull, East Yorkshire, England
Has modelled for: Boohoo, L’Oreal, Look Magazine, Bedhead and Hunger Magazine
Works for: Vision Los Angeles, Select Model Management

What is she up to?
Kara was lucky enough to have attended Glastonbury festival last week, and spent part of it supporting her friend, Laura Hayden who is part of the rising band ANTEROS. This year’s Glastonbury was one of the wettest and muddiest, but what else do people expect? And with Adele, Coldplay and Muse headlining, I bet the mud was the last thing Kara was thinking about!

Kara was chosen to be the face of our AW16 collection as she 'embodies the brand's care free approach to effortless, comfortable dressing'.
Here Kara models our Eton wellie in the new navy and cobalt blue. This bold and bright classical wellington is shorter for practical, lightweight fun. Although you will have to wait until August to get this colour, you can buy our navy and coral summer edition, perfect for wet, summer walks.
Below Kara points us in the right direction in our new nude Isobel ballet pumps. These sophisticated and contemporary flats flatter the leg and add a demure touch to any look. If you can't wait until August to get this shoe, our SS16 dusty pink Isobel is available now.
Finally, introducing our new disco glitter Amber in navy. This ballet pump will not only let you party the night away with plush padding, but is the perfect statement shoe to go with your party outfits!
