Canadian designer John Fluevog will be taking a bow at the upcoming Two Ten Foundation of Canada gala.
Fluevog, who has been named shoe person of the year, will be recognized next week for his unique, quirky approach to fashion.
“I am thankful I have lived through a time when a small business like mine can be a vehicle for independent expression and can move culture ahead for the good,” Fluevog said. “Putting something together from nothing has not been easy, but I wouldn’t change it. The challenge has made me push forward.”
