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!
