Elevate your daily strolls with Sebastian & Savannah
“Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.” Those were the words of the iconic Marilyn Monroe, which still bears truth today about women’s lives and their relationship to shoes. Whether they are chunky and flat or towering in heels, shoes have a special way of empowering women.
That is the goal of designer Kat Padilla, to offer shoes that will bring out the confidence in every woman with the help of her eco-friendly shoe line, Sebastian & Savannah. Relaunched in February 2021, the brand presents sustainably made shoes fit for the genteel Filipinas by using vegan and cruelty-free leatherette.
