All your modern-day Cinderella’s can jump with joy as the world’s first glass shoe collection is here! For all those who always craved to slip on this fragile footwear and make a fairytale-like entrance, the day has finally arrived courtesy of Pasquale Fabrizio. The exquisite collection of shoes by the Los Angeles shoe repair shop owner debuted on January 29 at a gala champagne reception. Combining his expertise in reconstructing designer footwear and his passion for Murano glass pieces, Fabrizio, who has doctored many celebrities’ shoes, has created a winner with this exquisite collection. Christened the Q Collection, this beautiful array of glass footwear is truly breathtaking. Gold chains with small 24-karat-gold-leaf beads can be seen dangling from atop the vamp of the foot.
The line features a high-end offering called the Couture Collection that is limited to just 500 pairs! Each shoe in the Couture Collection is distinguished by colorful glass that has been twisted around 4-inch metal heels. Many of the shoes are adorned with glass beads that are artistically strung on the leather straps that wind around the ankles. A large, clear acrylic box will accompany the shoes in the famed Couture Collection and a plush pillow to display the shoes. At $7500, the Couture Collection shoes are definitely one of the most high-end footwear markets.
Pasquale offers the Africa collection a lower-priced line of glass-adorned shoes for those who can’t afford this high price.
Truly unique and beautiful, I won’t be surprised to see celebrities walking down the red carpet at the Oscars in this high-end footwear.
