Poetic Licence has long been a favorite brand of ours because it’s affordable whimsical fashion that is fun and unique. This is why we are so excited about our Trunk Show and Spring Fete happening tomorrow evening hosted by Ashley Phillips, our Poetic Licence and Nicole sales representative. To help you get as pumped as we are about this event, we decided to ask Ashley a few questions about the line.
1. How long have you been selling Poetic Licence shoes?
I have been selling Poetic Licence for almost 4 years now.
2. What do you love about the brand?
I fell in love with the girly essence of Poetic Licence. The shoes have always had a whimsical quality yet still very wearable. They are definitely conversation pieces when worn in large groups of women! I get stopped everywhere I go in them! Who doesn’t love that?!
3. What’s your favorite shoe coming out this spring?
Petal Pusher is probably my favorite for the new spring 12 season, among many others! This particular style is a wedge with a sling back and peep toe. The styling reminds me of a vintage Mexican handbag with the woven embroidery of the flowers on the side of the wedge. It is a shoe that can be worn with cute dresses, shorts, capris, even denim! So cute!
4. When designing Poetic Licence shoes, what type of women do the designers have in mind?
The designers for Poetic Licence aspire to keep the line fun, flirty and whimsical. It has always been a specialty line and its worldwide appeal has spread across many different age groups. The typical Poetic Licence customer appreciates the design and artistry of each shoe and proudly wears them as pieces of art on their feet.
5. Why is Licence misspelled?
Poetic Licence was born in London, England to the Design Asylum group. British English spells licence with a “c” versus American English that spells it with a “s”. So truthfully, Licence is not spelled incorrectly.
