Core77, a design magazine and resource, recently issued its annual Design Awards, and Helen Furber of London was the winner of the Student Award, according to the publication's website.
Furber created a striking wedge that is made by specific components, which are all sustainable products. The shoe is called the Icica wedge, and was put together from a modular construction rather than glue. The result is both fashionable and eco-friendly, according to the media outlet.
The design is not available to be purchased quite yet, but Furber hopes that is the next step.
"My current main focus is a full-time design role but I'm hoping to find a sponsor to evolve the project in the future into a market-ready product," she told the news source.
Individuals who are interested in fashion design may want to know how much they will earn after they enter their job and graduate from their design programs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, professionals can make around $61,000, which was the annual median salary for individuals in this field in 2008.
