Leather pumps with imitation fur-covered heel, Lola PagolaIn 1985 Marijke Bruggink (1961) and Marlie Witteveen (1959) founded the Dutch shoe brand Lola Pagola. The concept of 'Dutch design' did not yet exist at the time. Despite this, they managed to win a lot of publicity and several awards with their extravagant collections. Bruggink and Witteveen are rightly regarded as pioneers in the field of shoe fashion.
