Fashion lovers and royal watchers will be interested to see the latest footwear to go on display at the Northampton Museum and Art Gallery.
Earlier this year over one hundred students at De Montfort University were tasked with creating a pair of shoes for the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.
After looking through 120 designs the Duchess picked an exquisite pair of sapphire shoes covered in delicate cream lace.
Designed by Becka Hunt, the prototype has been on display at Harrods, and will now spend six weeks as part of the Museum’s shoe collection.
Councillor Brandon Eldred, Northampton Borough Council cabinet member for community engagement said: "This week has been a fantastic one for our museum as we have taken in not one but two sets of shoes fit for a princess.
“Becka’s design clearly caught the Duchess of Cambridge’s eye with their stunning design. She will no doubt be another British designer to keep an eye on in future years.”
De Montfort University student Becka Hunt, 20, from Peterborough, said: "I am absolutely overwhelmed, excited and amazed.
The attention I have had since I was announced as the winner is all a little scary to be honest, but I have to say it has been great fun and hopefully this will be good for a future career.”
The prototype shoe will be on display in the Northampton Museum and Art Gallery until Sunday, September 9.
Later this year the Museum will host an exhibition of Becka’s work.
