Prada : Custom Shoe Design

For most of us, couture Prada is something we can only dream of. But now a new service, announced by Prada this weekend, allows fashionistas to design their own shoes. On March 26th and 27th the Sloane Street store will be opening it’s doors to customised orders based on it’s Made to Order Décolleté collection.

Aspiring designers will be able to choose from 9 different styles which they can then customise with their choices of heel height, colour and material. My favourite little details- there is an option to add your initials under the Prada logo, in their signature amber metal- amazing!

The orders take about a month to be made. There is no official word on pricing but it’s safe to say I won’t be popping along to Sloane Street for this, as much as I wish I could!

What do you think of this new service from Prada? Are you a designer shoe lover?

Oscars 2014: Best & Worst Dressed

Best of the night:

The stand out winner of the red carpet for me.. And many others:
Lupita Nyong’o in Prada.
The colouring of this was fantastic on her, and I love the classic shape. Simply stunning.

Runner up:

A close runner up. Kate Hudson in Versace. I’m usually prefer the brightly coloured gowns but I love the simplicity and classic lines of this. The silhouette is just perfection.

My loser for the night has got to be this…

Robin Roberts in Dennis Basso. Too much detail & crushed material. I also don’t like this shade of purple on her.

There were certainly more winners than losers, and some inspired choices. The red carpet is always my favourite part of the Oscars anyway! Who was your red carpet winner? I kinda hate to admit it but I love Kim K’s red dress too!
