Focusing less on what he refers to as the “economy” of shoemaking, Australian-born shoemaker Sebastian Tarek sits down with HBTV to discuss his disposition toward the design process, client interaction and overall personalized experience of his bespoke footwear creation process. What initially began as a curious hobby for the London-based designer has now developed into a highly revered trade in which Tarek personally meets each client to individualize every pair of shoes that he makes. Approaching each step within the design process with a degree of fluidity and precision not often experienced, Sebastian Tarek is a strong reminder of the appreciation and respect that is due, yet rarely attributed to, the handful of remaining modern day artisans.
