Minna Parikka is one that has always known what she has wanted to do in life, and that is design accessories.

At nineteen, she moved to London to study in one of the most prestigious design schools. At twenty-two, she won the award for "Young British Glove Designer." And at twenty-three, she began working for an Italian shoe designer.

But it was only in 2005 that she founded the fashion company that bears her name. Since, her accessories have been seen on celebrities such as Beth Ditto and Lady Gaga and in publications such as Elle, Vogue, and Harber’s Bazaar.

Minna Parikka herself said that a good pair of shoes can do "magic" and enrich the look of any girl. Stats for Cartoonish Accessories Trending: Older & Average
