An Important Message...

Miss L Fire is a diverse melting pot of cultures.

From the person responding to your emails & answering your calls, the person designing our beautiful shoes, the person that travels around the world getting our name out there, the person that manages our accounts to the person who designed and runs the website.

We are a small female-run team with heritages from across the globe.

We see what is happening in America (and in the U.K.) We see the systemic racism, we see the injustices and it hits home hard.

Things must change.

Difficult conversations need to be had.

It is not only for black and brown people to speak out.

We all must speak out, educate ourselves, finally start to learn & heal from past mistakes.

We must put ourselves into the shoes of people who are time and time again being treated as less than human simply because of the colour of their skin.

 

An injustice for one, is an injustice for all.
