Designer Dispatch: Ivy Kirzhner on Her Eponymous Shoe Line

Get to know one of our favorite on-the-rise shoe designers.

For our latest Designer Dispatch, we met with the wonderfully talented shoe designer Ivy Kirzhner. Ivy, who was born in the Philippines and moved to the states at the age of 7, comes from a family of artists, most with a penchant for all-things fashion, so its no wonder Ivy gravitated to her calling at the age of 15. She established her own brand at the tender age of 30 after having hit the ceiling perhaps a little too fast after working at places like Steve Madden, BCBGMAXAZRIA and Herve Leger. Without question, Ivy’s shoes have a very distinct look, one that’s all her own. She touches upon new silhouettes and has a knack for utilizing the most unexpected materials. Believe that in an Ivy Kirzhner design, you’re bound to get noticed. The designer invited SaksPOV to her very charming Soho studio to check out all her collections and to talk design.

SAKSPOV: Was shoe-design always in your purview?

IVY KIRZHNER: I went to the FAME school and after that I did my two–year shoe training at FIT and the rest is history. I have family in fashion. Two of my older sisters are running this cute children’s-wear empire, I have an uncle that’s a big couturier in Asia and all my aunts are fashionistas – my dad is an architect and engineer – so I’ve always been surrounded by fashion. I always wanted to do something architectural.

So if you had wanted to become a doctor you would’ve been the black-sheep of the family.

IVY: Totally. They’d be like “Where did you come from?” I wanted to do something that was fashion-related, but was technical, engineer-driven and something that really opens up a more cerebral aspect of my creativity. I’ve known I wanted to do shoes since I was about 15 years old.

Do you ever tackle things you hate, design-wise, as a way of conquering fears?

IVY: There are challenges. There’s not a lot of things I hate. There are principles I don’t like. We used to use fur and shearling and as I learned more about it – I told myself – no, we can’t use “fur” fur. Also, principles – there’s something wrong with overpriced plastic shoes. It’s been a big trend for the past few seasons and I think there’s something seriously wrong with that. It’s plastic, you guys. Why are you paying thousands of dollars for plastic? To me that’s insane. One of the biggest reasons I started this business is that I saw the void for a product that is very well made and built with a lot of integrity – but I don’t plan to cheat you with my prices.

Who is the Ivy Kirzhner woman?

IVY: I have a specific girl in mind, I see her all around me and I love her to death. She’s my muse and I follow her around, but I also have to preempt her. I like to think she’s very cultured and passionate about arts and culture. She loves to dress up and travel and integrate motifs and artifacts she picks up from her travels into her lifestyle.

Is there a particular Ivy Kirzhner calling-card in your shoe designs?

IVY: I love metal, so you’ll see a lot of metallic elements. I love using not-so-traditional components in shoes, like cabashaw and Austrian crystals in my embellishments. The inspiration for spring 2015 has a Moroccan/Tunisian elements to it. A North-African vibe. I really try to explore a different region of the world for each collection. I concentrate, I study the fabrics, weaving-techniques. I always use weaving in my collections, but because of the regions I explore, the type of weaving is different each time.

Do you make it a point to wear your own shoes?

IVY: All the time. The only other shoes I wear that aren’t mine are sneakers, I wear Converse all the time. I have to study my shoes so I have to constantly test them out. I have to see how they fit and how relevant they are with a typical woman’s wardrobe. To me it’s important to be able to see that.

Ivy Kirzhner and Company

When you expand your business, where do you foresee yourself taking it?

IVY:  I don’t want to dive into the apparel market because so many talented people that are already doing a phenomenal job at it. Buy the shoes from me, buy the clothes from them. I kind of want to get into lifestyle more than anything. I’d probably do candles or maybe champagne. Collaborate with the Coppolas and their winery. Handbags? No. I’ll buy that from the other guys.
