Mademoiselle - the styles you love, the brands you crave

For most women, shoes are more than mere accessories – they are the key to confidence. And there is nowhere better to shop for the latest elegant footwear than Mademoiselle in Village Walk, Friars Hill Road.

This December will mark three years since the locally-owned company threw open its doors to business, putting the S into sophistication and the boot into competitors. Mademoiselle’s new premises – just a stone’s throw away from its former site in the same shopping plaza – is a unique distributor of some of the finest brand names in ladies’ shoes.

From Nine West, Anne Klein, and Bandolino, to Steve Madden, BCBG and Jessica Simpson – plus several new lines soon to arrive – the collection is chic, stylish and always in vogue. "These internationally recognised brands are known for their unique style and exceptional quality," says owner Joseph Warner. "Catering to women of class with the most discerning of taste, we thrive on providing first class customer service, with a difference, in a state of the art facility."

In need of the right handbag, clutch or statement piece of jewellery to complement your outfit? Mademoiselle also has a range of accessories to ensure you’re dressed to kill for any occasion. Its expert team of staff is always on hand to lend creative advice and exceptional customer service. Because Mademoiselle buys all its stock directly from manufacturers, prices are kept affordable. And with ongoing sales ranging from 10–50 per cent, customers can look their best – without going into the red.

As most women will testify, wearing the right pair of shoes can instantly transform not just your appearance, but your mood and self-esteem too. Because, as actress Seo Min Hyun said, "Good shoes take you good places." Mademoiselle is located at 1 Village Walk Plaza on Friars Hill Road, St John's. Opening hours are Monday to Saturday from 10am to 6pm.
