The idea of creating a school of shoe masters came to Nizhny Novgorod designer Rustam Adyukov. He himself has been engaged in the manufacture of designer shoes, little hearts and other shoes for more than fifteen years. And concerned about the lack of a shift.
Rustam already has thoughts on how to improve the situation. He proposes to open a shoe school in Dzerzhinsk: the curriculum has already been developed and the teachers have been found. There are also young people willing to study. It is only necessary to find a common language with the regional administration, but, according to the master, the time has not yet come for this. Ahead of him is the Vienna Ball, where he will take the Princess and the Pea clogs and a shoe sculpture.
The designer’s first creation at the age of fourteen was a pair of plasticine and textile shoes. This promising beginning gradually developed and developed in three areas of activity: individual tailoring shoes, limited edition prints for people with some orthopedic problems, and shoes as an art object, which the inexperienced viewer hardly recognizes for shoes.
According to the master, ideas do not always come by themselves, sometimes they have to be artificially created. True, finished models do not always find their customer: after all, designer shoes are not cheap. Having worked in the profession for more than fifteen years, Rustam says that the Russian footwear industry has strongly lost ground over the past ten years.
“There are a lot of factors that say that we lost a lot of shoe business, first of all, this is the recent socialist past, because the division of labor led to the fact that we lost wagons,” says Rustam Adyukov.
Now shoe designers are enthusiasts who do not have to count on serious commercial success. The designer uses only natural materials in her work, and quite exotic ones: walrus tusk, whalebone, petrified trees. Sometimes Rustam orders these raw materials himself, and sometimes friends bring them from foreign trips.
The artist loves crafts and crafts: almost every of his product has motives of folk crafts of the region. Based on materials of the NTV.
