What are some new trends in shoes that you think can work in bridal?
Lucite and vinyl are two trends that translate into the bridal collection nicely. What I favor from my fall bridal and evening collections are silhouettes with extreme platforms, unique bow detailing like ruffles and berry-colored jacquard silk materials.
What is your favorite shoe that you have designed?
I have a very soft spot for my favorite shoe, because it led to my first award for design. It was a beautifully detailed, elegant guipure lace pump that I created specifically for a bride. It appealed to the bride in such a way that it became an instant classic and also set the standard for many creations by other shoe designers...
