Inspiring Designer Series - Mor Koren




Mor was born in Israel and studied Art & Design at the Academic Technological University in Tel-Aviv/Holon. Even as a child, Mor always had a drawing pencil in her hand, and she realized her passion for design at a very young age. A multifaceted artist, Mor’s interests include painting, graphic & web design, sculpture, as well as music, all of which are reflected in the fluidity of her unique designs. 

The process of creating and producing an “M Shoe” begins with Mor sketching it in her Manhattan studio. Working alone, without apprentices or assistants, she sketches the shoes, carefully selects the lasts on which they are molded, and adjusts the fit as the final touch. She then supervises the production process.

With a smile she says: “It took a lot of ‘footwork’ to learn how to make shoes beautiful yet comfortable. It all started one day when I was walking down the street and had a mental flash of a unique design idea for shoes, that just wouldn’t let me be.” This vision is in the process of being patented as part of Mor’s promise that the best is yet to come, with a launch date expected for M Shoes third season.
 
In addition to designing the shoe collections, Mor designs all promotional materials such as: Logo Design, Web Design, Graphic Design, Packaging Design, POP design, etc. This ensures the consistency of the M Shoe Design brand.
