Manolo Blahnik told WWD about how he had to remake Kate Moss’ wedding shoes FIVE times to get them right as Moss confessed to “turning mental” for a moment while she was making all the preparations for her wedding with Jamie Hince. The customized $895 Godichefac open sandals with pretty ornate design were decorated with jewels but to get it right the shoes were remade five times.
We did them five times to get them the way she wanted.
The shoes arrived the day before and there were too many jewels on the heel because of the long train, so we had women working up until midnight to change it.
My workers are the best people. I wouldn’t be here without them.
said Manolo Blahnik to WWD. Blahnik has also expressed his delight for platform shoe trend decline as the designer has gained his popularity for his signature style in making feminine and delicate shoes.
Those ‘furniture’ shoes are finally over, or starting to be.
Blahnik has described his fall collection as “sweet”, “feminine” and “new” and it’s great as the fall season trends toward more feminine and delicate designs.
Kate Moss’ wedding was “divine” according to designer who said Moss has “a presence” that one has to feel. Kate Moss wore her customized Godichefac sandals with a vintage wedding gown by John Galliano for her wedding ceremony in July.
I like the original sandals as they are. What do you think?
