Fly London was created in the UK in 1994 and it is owned by Fortunato O. Frederico & Ca Lda with head office and production in Portugal. From the very beginning Fly London’s design philosophy has been to create original fashion products using traditional techniques in an unexpected way. Bound for the fashion market, Fly London is uncompromising in its style and design.
Angela first fell in love with Fly London in Edinburgh, Scotland back in 1996. A few years back Angela had the pleasure of flying to Auckland to have lunch with the owners, the only retailer in NZ to do so. ‘I felt like a groupie meeting my idols. It was truly fantastic to be in the presence of world leading footwear designers’. Fly London is manufactured in Portugal for the world market, except the USA product is manufactured in China. The factory employs over 700 people in a small ancient village in North Portugal. This is a family of 700 who hand craft these beauties. Profits are shared with the designers, so if you design a winner you could be set for life! The quality, attention to detail and design of componentry is second to none. In 2020 when Covid hit Europe the Fly Factory turned its hand to making PPE gear for their local emergency services. So, you could see handsome Portuguese Firemen and women along with Ambulance staff all rocking out in Fly London face masks. Never Conventional. Don’t Walk Fly!
