Last week the New York Historical Society hosted the Independent Handbag and Shoe Awards highlighting emerging talent and accessories icons.
Tina Aldatz, the creator of Foot Petals announced the winner of “Best Shoe in Overall Design” with Libby Edelman. The winner, Rafael Young will be collaborating with Sam Edelman shoes and Foot Petals to design a limited edition pair of shoes to be sold exclusively at Verve in New York City and http://www.footpetals.com/.
I, for one, cannot WAIT to be able to purchase this shoe and the limited edition set coming soon. However as Rafael has a price point of $400-1000, it may be off limits for this fashionista. His rock couture edge makes these shoes irresistible masterpieces.
