In 2009, designer Mallory Musante began her own line of beautiful hand-painted footwear. Her line began with kitten heels and has expanded to platforms, and also offers custom designed products as well as looks for brides to be and their bridal parties. Mallory's designs have been seen on the runways of New York Fashion Week, Real Housewife of NYC Alex McCord as well as former Real Housewife of NJ Dina Manzo. On May 18, she had a fabulous trunk show and debuted her Fall 2011 and Spring 2012 collections. I had the pleasure of attending the event, and I'm happy to report- girls got skills.
Hosted by celebrity stylist Yannique Joseph and held at SoHo boutique Ruia, guests munched on cupcakes from Craving 4 Cupcakes and drinks from Skinny Water.
The shoes were absolutely beautiful. Each and every pair is made with genuine leather and painted with acrylic paint, signed by Mallory herself.
My favorites included the "Emma" shoe, with great purple bow detail on the back (I have an unhealthy obsession with bows, by the way).
My other favorite thing about the shoes? They're affordable! Prices range from $125-$175. Great, customizable hand-painted heels for under $200? Definitely a winning combination.
