GIL Agencies is owned and founded by Gerard Levy. Gerard has had a lifetime of experience in the footwear industry and is now recognised as a leading and respected figure in the market.
In the late 1990’s he took over the family shoe business, Spice London. With a very unique and clear concept, he turned this small indie into a multi award winning shop.
In this same period, after several approaches from top European designers he became an independent sales Agent. From this point he began to sell not only to the public, but help and advise some of the finest designers and stores throughout the World.
Then in 2014, seeing a gap in the market. He created and organised the UK’s first ever premium shoe show PLFM London. After just 3 shows, PLFM was admired so much it was acquired by International fashion show Pure London It eventually became Premium Footwear at Pure, with Gerard being the Curator.
Gerard was also a judge on the panel for the Drapers Footwears Awards in 2012 and was nominated for the Pure Buyers Award in 2015.
