Designer Disney:Cinderella


Dreams come true!
 It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Disney and that I live for a great fashion accessory. So obviously I was thrilled when I heard the good magical news that Disney has collaborated with nine high end designers to create you guessed it the perfect pair of shoes. In commemoration of Disney's live action rendition of the classic fairytale "Cinderella". From Ferragamo,Weitzman, and Jimmy Choo to name a few this sassy collaboration is truly enchanting.Swarovski adorned the classic slippers for the live action version of "Cinderella" with the creative eye of Academy Award®-winning costume designer Sandy Powell. Each of the enchanted designer slippers will feature Swarovski crystals providing an extra bit of magic.
Below is a savvy preview of the magical shoes via the designer’s illustrations. Each designer has created an enchanting pair of shoes incorporating the brands ascetic essences into tangible "glass slippers".The footwear collection is set to be revealed next month just in time for the March 13th release date of the fairytale.These designer slippers will be available world wide at:
 | United States – Saks Fifth Avenue (New York and Beverly Hills) | London – Harrods | Paris – Galeries Lafayette | Milan – Excelsior Milano | Moscow – Tsum | Tokyo − Isetan Shinjuku | Dubai – Level Shoe District, The Dubai Mall |



 If you plan on making these fairytale shoes your dream come true you can reach out to the specific retailer for availability details.

“The magic of a shoe that turns a woman into a princess and gives her the feeling of walking on clouds is a universal dream. A modern Cinderella fairy tale of rediscovering a soft sensuality and a powerful femininity. A shoe made of transparency and light: the cage heel, an iconic symbol of Salvatore Ferragamo, is covered with Swarovski crystals and is transformed by sparkling impalpability.” -Massimiliano Giornetti, creative director at Salvatore Ferragamo

"Cinderella in 2015 has a timeless appeal. The diamond and translucent bootie enhance the vision I have of her.” -Stuart Weitzman




“Cinderella has both delicate and strong qualities as a character. The moment of transformation emphasizes both and gave me the design inspiration to create a piece that spoke to the film’s magic.” -Nicholas Kirkwood


"The stroke of midnight is a wonderful element of the Cinderella fairytale, it adds tension and intensity to the story. I was inspired by that when I designed this style for Cinderella and the result is a dramatic midnight-blue glitter sandal on a sky-high heel. The clear strap is reminiscent of the crystal slipper, while the refined gold and silver trims add the right amount of whimsy to the design. I wanted to create something that, if left behind, the Prince would feel even more captivated by Cinderella’s allure.” -Jerome C. Rousseau


“I think every girl desires a Cinderella moment in their lives. This story ignites a love affair and fascination with shoes that never dies. The power they have to transform is instilled from a young age and the fantasy remains alive forever. I wanted to create a shoe that felt magical, with alluring sparkle and a feminine, timeless silhouette evoking those childhood emotions.” -Sandra Choi, Creative Director Jimmy Choo



“I am delighted and honoured to be invited by Disney to design one of the most iconic shoes in history. It was such a pleasure to create my version of Cinderella’s glass slipper which I have aptly named If the Shoe Fits. This transparent platform shoe made with my signature PVC & perspex materials is adorned with star and crystal detailing as befits any princess.” -Charlotte Olympia


“My vision of the glass slipper was inspired by the timeless and feminine beauty that I believe Cinderella and the Alexandre Birman brand both share. I reinterpreted our classic Johanna pump, this time giving it a fashionable and romantic twist with satin and Swarovski crystals. It’s a shoe I imagine a modern princess would wear.” -Alexandre Birman



“‘Works of arts called shoes’ to grant wishes and raise emotions. Passion and never ending research don’t draw the line at fantasy and creativity. This is how dreams come true in our fairy tale.” -RenĂ© Caovilla

The illustration of the shoe I wouldn't want to leave behind? 
 Paul Andrew's "glass slipper"


“Cinderella's glass slipper represents every woman's dream shoe. The story, being a classic, inspired me to use my iconic pointed toe silhouette, which I embellished with an array of hand encrusted Swarovski crystals to create the ultimate fantasy shoe. I used transparent PVC to create a 'glass' effect and ivory suede for luxurious texture and dimension.” - Paul Andrew

Which pair is your perfect fit?
