Ms Jupp began making her 'strikingly unconventional' creations back in 2012 on her kitchen table. Fast forward four years and she now counts the likes of Kylie Minogue, Kat Von D, and Boy George among her clients.

Ms Jupp, 35, said: 'My shop not only houses my studio and strikingly unconventional footwear, but it's also the first retail shop of its kind to curate an environment for shoe lovers.

'Most Milly J shoes are made entirely to the client's specifications, however I do sell a small collection of limited edition shoes and clips in store – the spaghetti and garlic bread clip is available to purchase in the shop.'
