Magda is the casual wear version of Thian’s award winning design Magdalena that bagged silver award during 2019’s International Footwear Design Competition. The design is based on Filipina character Magdalena who was portrayed to be a common courtesan. Thian created a look that paints the character in a different light, giving the underlying idea that Magdalena’s intentions may not have been obscene but for distress or need. Magda features a white straps that represent purity and is bedazzled with metal pieces.

The main attraction of the shoes are the pre-cut bullet shells that decorate the straps. These represent the harsh judgements thrown at Magdalena, but instead of taking offense, used it to empower. Thian is fond of deep messaging and expression in his work, Magda is a great example.
