“Whenever I start sketching an idea for a shoe I always, always find a soundtrack  of music something to allow my thoughts and visions to somehow rise and come to the surface, a place deep within my mind allowing me to imagine and focus on my muse, who is she? What and who does she like to wear? Who are her friends? What does she drink? Where does she dine? Where does she holiday?

My mind runs wild creating, deliberating, rejoicing and celebrating her every inch of attitude and style.

I guess the process reminds me how Ian Flemming  created his muse in James bond and bonds traits and habits.

While designing my first collection I stumbled across this poem below which I find wonderful and exact. This is who YOU are and what YOU mean to me and why YOU yes YOU are Beata Lei.”

Beautiful, Strong, Intelligent, Women.

Stunned by your elegance, your beautiful in every way. The very scent of your fragrance burns through the skin like sun rays. From the feminine in your walk to the sexiness in your talk, even a slight glance from your eyes can send sparks and liven up the day.

Strength is your demeanour you don’t break or fold. To the cunning your much keener, standing tall and speaking bold. In quiet whispers you roar like that of a lioness. Queen of the jungle honoured by all as your highness.

Intellect is your greatest gift, you’re nobody’s fool. Having the mind-set of a genius but always remaining cool. Able to think through any situation your determination is a living inspiration, and fuels the world with new found motivation.

As beautiful Strong Intelligent women you are truly astonishing in every right. The very essence of your presence is such a delight, soothing the souls of those around you in the darkness and light.

A woman like you so full of charisma and tenacity deserves a man of satisfactory who will respect you compassionately and love you everlastingly. You are the women that every man truly desires. A need so dire can only be fulfilled by the rapture of your engulfing fire. The Fire of Love that is…

So Beautiful Strong Intelligent Women where ever you may be, there’s a Handsome Strong Intelligent Man out somewhere looking for you. Maybe even me.
