George Sully (Shoes Designer & Founder of BlackDesignersofCanada.com)
Designer and creative director with more than 15 years of industry experience, specifically in the arena of shoe design. … He’s also the founder of Shoeonado, a private label design consultancy and the creative mastermind behind the Starfleet Boot, seen on the cast of the CBS show STAR TREK Discovery.
On June 8th 2020, Sully launched the Black Designers of Canada, a first-of-its-kind interactive index with a mission to offer Black designers a platform and to help them get ahead in the fashion world—an industry that hasn’t always been inclusive. The BDoC is a collaborative platform—designers and brands can be nominated on social media or through the BDoC website. So far, hundreds of names have been submitted, and Sully is preparing to release the names soon.
