Meet the Designer Making Heels for Sneakerheads

Introducing Ancuta Sarca.

We have an undeniable love for sneakers here at Coveteur HQ, and after London Fashion Week came and went last month, there was one designer we were still drooling over: Ancuta Sarca—the woman behind those Instagrammable heels every sneaker lover wants.

Sarca first started making upcycled kitten heels when she realized how many shoes she had that she wasn’t wearing. After taking her Nikes and repurposing them into pointy-toe heels and open-toe slide mules, the young designer gained recognition for her designs and sustainability efforts. “I think that we, the designers, have a responsibility towards the environment, climate change, and the future generations, and we should use our creative abilities to change the way we design and use materials,” she says. Originally from Romania, Sarca credits her approach to design to the fact that she “couldn’t always obtain things easily at most times” and had to “be creative and improvise [her] looks.”

Sarca debuted her first presentation with fashion collective Fashion East, a nonprofit organization that encourages and guides young emerging designers. “I’m really proud to be a part of it,” she explains. “[It’s] a great achievement and a really exciting experience to get to show my work to so many people.” Additionally, Sarca launched an exclusive collection with LN-CC of four different styles of her upcycled heels. (They’ve since completely sold out.)
