Previewing Prada’s Bespoke Shoe Collection

I recently had the opportunity to preview Prada’s Bespoke shoe collection at Tyson’s Galleria in Washington, DC.

prada, italy, bespoke shoes, heather neisworthThe new Made To Order Décolleté collection is a very special opportunity for customers to design their own Prada shoes.The journey to create your own custom pair of shoes begins by choosing a design model.  Choices include pumps, flats or peep-toes? Next there is a rainbow of colors and prints as well as fantastic materials to pick including: satin, suede, patent and different types of leather.

Picking a customized sole is the next difficult choice, and I immediately fell to the charms of the delicate, light blue sole but colors like black, white and beige are also available. And to add the icing on top of the beautiful Prada shoe fantasy, if you so choose, you can add your initials in amber-colored medal below the Prada logo on the sole of the shoe.

These delightful shoes are delivered within one month and are the dream for any woman.

Pure Femininity, lace, red leather and butterflies graced the runway at the Blumarine Spring 2014 fashion show in Milan, Italy.

Leather and lace are two big trends for Fall 2013, and by the looks of the Spring shows Leather is evolving into a soft and sophisticated option.

The red Leather skirt is my absolute favorite look from the Blumarine show.

Now Blumarine showed some delicate and angelic white dresses, which stood out in contrast to the red leather skirt which is a bold choice for Spring.

Will you decide to be rocking red leather this spring?
