Holy Shiit..Literally!!!!

 Contemporary British artist Chris Ofili who is known for his controversial pieces one particular exciting piece 'the Holy virgin mary'which had dung on it inspired Artist Insa in partnership with designer Ruth Shaw to create a 10 inch elephant dung heels, constructed with excrement. I like the idea of pearls and beads; it has a way of tying the shit(s'cuse my language) and the colourful print together. Pretty bizzare concept but hey if Lady Gaga can beef it out then i guess we can let the shit hit the fan.lol.

Lil' Miss Cand Cane!

this is one of my many sketches; i knoow i took forever but i wanted to recreated the pieces on photoshop but unfortunately there's been a couple of issues with that character so i decided to just scan it pencil on paper, i would post up the worked on image later on when I'm through with it. the theme behind this shoe is glamourous chic with a twist; the little slashes going from the countier downwards represents zips which are going to be in gold which gives the heels more edge to the girly look.  The pumps are gona be created in blush pink colour with the countier going in a wavy spiral manner down to the topline of the pumps. The weight of the foot is balanced on the welt which is on the outersole of the shoe as the tip of the pumps go upwards. The seat of the heel is extended to the middle of the heel for more comfort and ability to work in. Yeah that's a lot of detail hopefully you understand it, you could look up parts of a heel to understand the terms i used that would help. you can see my little faint shoe signature of the right hand side of the page cute isn't it hehexx. More of my sketches to come soon as i figure out how to convert it from adobe to photo viewr so i can post it up

Shift shapes Ruthie Davis!!!!!

Ruthie Davis 2010/11 shoe spring collection was all about the signature metal seperator and clear lucite at the bottom.  The features of the heels; metallic straps, nude leather, translucent criss- cross straps are a reminder of the movie 'I ROBOT'. i can image myself wearing those with a high waisted pencil grey satin skirt and a white bralet over embellished in silver studs. KILLA!!!!

Where's Santa Claus when u need him??? hhmmphh......

These shoes make me cry, who wouldn't kill for a pair.... I WOULD!! these platform 80's inspired heels were created by Charles Anastase for his spring 2009 collection. i came across his collection looking up 'ridiculous heels' on the web then i found this photo of London badgirl Pixie Geldof tripping over in a pair of black ankle green strapped booties n i fell in love sigh*... theres a a steal by Jessica Simpson..... yeah i said it Jessica Simpson appearently she has a line I didn't know that.... (i know i know i'm stale) well i would give credit, these shoes are a great copycat but i still give all hands down to Anastase. Now, on a serious note who would like to play Santa Claus and send me a pair :D

There's a new way to 3Dimension. Chau Har Lee graduate of Cordwainer College London, completed her masters at Royal college of Arts. she creates pieces which are both conceptual bytr accessible footwear after spending years as a free lance designer for Nicole Farhi. Back to the shoes....... I'm in AWE of them!!!!. what i love about the heels are, they are flat unlike regular shoes which are circular; most of hedesigns have a back opener for the ball of the feet a mimic of a bottle opener. I just wish i could get my hands on a pair... maybe two... or more heehee xxxx
