Jackie and Adrian, Pendragon Shoes.


If travel to outer space was a reality for the everyday person, would you go and why?

 - Well I absolutely love all things sci fi but I’d reckon I’d chicken out of space travel. Adrian on the other hand would be there in a minute.

 

If you could put a message on a billboard for everyone to see, what would that message be?

 - Be kind.

 

 

Pendragon is so unique, tell us about how it was conceived and where you see it going in the future?

 - Pendragon was born 30 years ago when we needed some boots to wear to a medieval fair in Brisbane, so we made ourselves some. We have been making shoes and boots to order ever since. We are self taught – it’s been quite a journey. In the future we see Pendragon moving into ready to wear ranges that we can get handmade overseas. We’ll keep doing our bespoke work, but our designs can evolve and be more accessible.

 

If you could make a pair of shoes for anyone, past or present, who would it be and what would you create?

 - We’d love to make some boots for Johnny Depp, and we probably just should! We’d make him some Alice in Wonderland boots. We’ve just made boots for Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman which was pretty exciting! Someone from the past would be my grandfather. He died before I started making shoes. He would have loved it.

 

Pendragon, like Dogstar embraces and encourages women to explore their uniqueness, how would you describe your style?

 - Our style has developed from our love of story books. The shoes in fairy tale books always show such great character. They are often a mix of historical and fantasy….that’s us in a nutshell. We like making things that have never been made before…so it’s a challenge to finally be making up limited edition ranges of our designs. But we’re doing it!

 Artist Georgina Hooper talks to us about inspiration.

What is your most recent obsession?

My 16 month old daughter!


Any new favorite colour / style in painting ?

I love the large scale colour field paintings of American Abstract Expressionist Marko Rothko. His work is what I would fill my dream home with if I could afford to. His use of large open spaces, simple composition and focus on the sublime beauty of colour and its effect on us spiritually and mentally is what I love about his work. Looking at art becomes a form of meditation. It is all about vibrational energy. It sounds hippy but it is very scientific. My favourite colour is probably best exemplified in Rothko's 1956 work 'Green on Blue'. “Green on Blue” (1956).

What's your dream travel destination and why?

My dream travel destination is South East Asia. I particularly love visiting Hong Kong for its exciting pace and its juxtaposition between tradition and change, East and West. China is always going to be a great love for me too and of course divine Japan, which I still have so much to see yet. At the moment though, Bali is really calling me and we are thinking of visiting at the end of the year. There are a few artist residencies popping up away from the main tourist areas. Places where there is beautiful nature to experience and a sense of the spiritual and serenity in its people is what I am draw to.


What would you spirit animal be?

Ha ha probably a bird. Perhaps an eagle. They are strong, powerful and independent with a love of wide open spaces and when they choose their mate, they really do fall for them and are together for life.
