Creative Design

Linda received her fine arts training from Rhode Island School of Design, graduating with a BFA in painting, and her fashion, accessory and shoe design training from Fashion Institute of Technology and Parsons School of Design in NYC. After a successful career in the New York Fashion Industry in VP Design and Merchandising and Sales positions, she founded two product design businesses, and later designed and consulted for a range of manufacturers, developing creative product designs tailored to individual client brand identities.

As designer of the Linda Pritcher Collection made in Italy, her shoes incorporated the luxurious leathers and textiles available in Italy with thoughtful comfort features, impeccable attention to detail, and chic classic styling. Linda’s shoes complimented the life of the busy modern woman in the perfect blend of style and comfort. She also created the Grace and Lucy line of travel essentials to support women with fashion on their own terms through creating everyday, everywhere accessories and footwear combined with a dash of panache.

From the first moment I saw the extraordinary array of artisan leathers available to me as a shoe and accessory designer, the intricate patterns and textures, the colors from subtle to brilliant, I was smitten. Until then I really didn’t know that leather could be quite that beautiful and, well, hardly look like leather. Yet it’s the very substance, the skin, that gives the material richness and depth. Its ornamental and sensual nature is perfect for close to the body.

The artisans who work the leather into this magnificent state follow a centuries old tradition and yet are innovators and artists in their own right. Season after season I’ve collected these unique swatches. Many have been used to make my shoes but many more were considerations in a designer’s endless pick and choose.

While my shoes and bags are designed by me and made in Italy and now in Portugal as well, the jewelry is designed and made entirely by me.

Each pair of earrings is a one of a kind combination as I only have enough leather for one. The leathers are from the best tanneries in Italy and the design of angles is clean and geometric. The earrings have movement and they are whisper light.
