Daniel Charkow is an emerging shoemaker and designer who combines art and technology with traditional shoe making techniques.
His appreciation for hand-tooling and sustainability are key features in his designs as seen in his iconic Chair Shoe made from a discarded chair found on the side of the road. Inspired by Lady Gaga’s fierce fashion and bold choices, at age twelve Daniel created his first shoe.
Falling in love with the art, Daniel pursued shoemaking and has interned with the likes of Steve Madden, Ron White, and Aldo. Recently, Daniel’s designs were shown twice at London Fashion Week in collaboration with graduate designers. Daniel is currently studying shoe design at London College of Fashion
