The designer Monique Lhuillier, most know for her bridal designs, is launching her first shoe collection for next spring. The Italian-produced shoes will feature exotic skins and lace, for which Lhuillier is known. “I wanted them to be sexy, feminine and glamorous.”
For the last three years, she did design footwear for her runway shows, but they were never produced for the public. As she said, “What I learned about the shoe business and the shoe process is that it takes a lot longer than making a soft garment.” Now that puts our expectations pretty high!
