Being a complete animal lover, Swati Mehrotra also, keenly designs shoes for pets, like she did for her own dog.

The USP of the label is that each pair is treated as “a piece of art”.

So here are the questions we asked her and her lovely answers..

Since how long you are in to Footwear Designing?
A lil tricky! I am into designing since the age of 12 when I started designing for my dolls and dreamt of being a designer 🙂 shoes probably happened to me like an accident (Lolz..) and I started making shoes from the age of 21 🙂 when I was in FDDI along with my course I made few special needs shoes and probably that was the seed towards this thought of customized shoes.

Tell us about your footwear line in Sidharth Tytler’s show at Lakme Fashion Week
summer/resort 2012.

I tried to match up the perfection and fine detailing like Siddharth does to his clothing line. We experimented with stilletoes to make it basic and chic moved to color blocks in more structured and block chunky heels and finally to evergreen wedges.

Which celebrities wore and love your footwear?
My first client was Liza Verma (ex miss India) and Ila Arun:) guess they are my first and favorite. Shibani Kashyap too flaunts Swatimodo. Iris Maitey and Hasleen Kaur too. There is many other celebrities love wearing SwatiModo. We did shoes for various pageants, models, shows etc. Even Priyanka Alva wore Swatimodo pair too.

What Swati Modo did Different from others for the Society?

Swatimodo runs a shoe academy in Tihar jail to teach the inmates the art and making them self dependent and urging people to accept them back in society.
