I?m Tracy Feith, designer for TOMS+. I am a designer, that's what I do. For a long time I designed clothes for my own company, and now I'm in California which is really inspiring for me. The way I work, I can get inspired by anything. I can see someone walking down the street that just somehow makes me wonder about something, or see a photograph, or it could come from just a general overall feeling that's in the air for me, about how people would like to live. With TOMS+, a big part of what I try to do is take the TOMS silhouette and push it into new areas. That?s the fun part, is like taking all of those elements and then grabbing them, and stirring them up, and then seeing what comes out. It's fun for me to really push the envelope and use different kinds of leathers and suedes and custom jacquard and wovens. A big part of it is the attention to detail, whether that's hand-stitching, matte shine, multiple needle stitching?all the details are really fine tuned and I really love that. Whats so unique about TOMS is that for every pair of the shoes you buy, TOMS gives a pair to a child in need. And so its nice to have another reason for making these nice things and making things that people want. This is like an added?its like a plus, TOMS+. Its not about consumerism, its about creating something nice, that just helps you dream, or live your life or feel like you can fulfill your dream. I think really good design does that for people.
