Boots created by Flora Knight have featured on new television show The Luminaries, which premiered on Sunday.
The show, an adaptation of Eleanor Catton’s Booker Prize-winning novel, focuses on a young British woman who moves to New Zealand’s West Coast during the Gold Rush in the 1860s.
Miss Knight (29) secured the high-profile job through shoemaking teacher Louise Clifton, who was initially approached but did not have the time, and recommended Miss Knight.
She finally got to see her work on the small screen on Sunday, and said she was thrilled with how often the footwear featured in shots.
"It’s like seeing a friend in a movie."
She was given a brief to design Victorian boots for the main character, Anna Wetherell, played by actress Eve Hewson and her stunt double.
While she usually created custom pieces for people, after the experience she was keen to work on more productions.
"Costume stuff is so cool," she said.
"Something like The Luminaries, which is Victorian era .. it’s a period piece. You learn a lot about history and you have to do a lot of research into what materials were available."
Miss Knight will soon swap Victorian shoes for cowboy boots, however, as she plans to move to Oklahoma, in the United States.
