Mens Schuh’s and Boogaloos

One of the many perks of having such amazing product is being able to proudly launch them alongside the other brands carried by our partner Schuh. Our super talented mens footwear designer Danny and our lovely buyer James have done such a great job making our mens shoes one of the things we are most proud of here at ROD towers. We had such a great time at the Schuh mens footwear launch and we just can’t wait for our new shoes to hit stores very soon.



  On my 21st Birthday my parents bought me a book…called ROCI; Rauschenberg Overseas Culture interchange. In this book Robert Rauschenberg created a series of travel adventures in response to each location that he visited between 1984-1990. He changed the way I looked at design – Inanimate found objects, decoupage, printing techniques, the use of colour and space.  He showed me how to use readily available collectables to be part of my life’s scrap book and part of my work. So you can imagine my excitement when I finally managed... Read More


I’ll Be “Back” ;-)

So sorry that its been a while since I have written a blog. I have been slightly disabled (haven’t been able to walk) due to a condition called Spondylolisthesis (I can’t even say it) I think… that I had initiated this condition when attempting to touch my head on the floor in Hot Yoga and then getting trapped upside-down and then even more embarrassingly having to be carried out of class.  I can now happily say that I have had my lower spine fused  2 rods, a plate and 4 screws and I’m on the road to recovery… soon I will be back in our...

Speed Painting in Plymouth

Fun start to the week with 3rd year fashion students at Plymouth University working on a speed painting Plymouth inspired print, that would be used for a range of swimwear. The rules were simple: paint in circles dots or waves to the colour palette I selected. Every 10 minutes the students had to put down their paint brushes and move 3 steps to the right and start painting again. I was a little worried by the work at the first (I must admit) but as the students circled their way... Read More


Fellowship of the Katie

We would like to congratulate our very talented creative director Katie Greenyer who received her honorary fellowship at Plymouth university this weekend. We can’t think of anybody who deserves this more and we’re so happy for her.



What a week!  Our beautiful shoes – spanning 36 years – have finally been archived.  I found out what Stella McCartney’s been up to at the KERING sustainability talk on Monday night, hosted by London College of Fashion #LCFxKering.  Then Tuesday night was a blast from the past as Monica Lewinsky talked about cyber bullying after falling in love her boss (Mr Clinton!) at the age of 22.  Still controversial, but soo interesting. Now I’m off to #NotAnotherSalon to – despite my lovely workmates requesting blonde – turn my hair navy!  Let’s see how that... Read More


Archive Bonanza!

At Red or Dead towers we were rooting through our archive this week, doing a bit of spring cleaning…Well a bit might be an understatement. It’s been so long since we had a good look at our vintage stock we forgot just how much beautiful shoes and specs we had just tucked away. So many memories so much hard work and all worth it.


Photoshoots and Sparkly Boots

We’re so proud of our new shoes for Autumn/Winter 16 that we couldn’t wait to show you this sneak peak at our new photoshoot. Everything is available at Schuh right now so go and check them out and get yourself some awesomeness!


RoD site

OMG! Its happening, our new website is coming together better and faster than we though and we are soooo ready. Pretty Red or Dead is going to be home to the best webpage on the net. Keep you eyes peeled it only gets better from here.


Camden Market

We’re working on our new website and we thought “what better way to get inspired than to return to our roots at camden market!” We had so much fun taking pictures and eating delicious food to inspire our new takeaway themed website. We hope you have as brilliant a time visiting our new website as we did visiting our home away form home where it all started.
