With her newly minted MBA from Loyola University Kathryn created a business plan based around shoes for tall women. After drafting sketches and specs for her first line of women's dress shoes, Kathryn worked with craftsmen in Northern Italy to produce her designs. Her designs, hand crafted in Spain, are inspired primarily from her Grandmother's designer couture wardrobe and most of her designs reflect this vintage flair.
"My designs give the soles a well-deserved break from constricting fabrics, uncomfortable heels and flats." She says. "The handcrafted construction provides gentle control without rough materials and machine-made fabrication. The soft leather lining allows the soles to breathe without constricting or pinching the toes. The moderate arch and soft, elastic back found on the ballet flats provide additional comfort."
Kerrigan's shoes have been available on her website (www.kathrynkerrigan.com) for the past several years. Now she has opened a retail store in Libertyville at 741 N. Milwaukee Ave, Libertyville, IL 60048. You can order by phone at 847.557-5067. The grand opening celebration for the store will be on March 10 at 4 pm.
