My first morning in London got off to a smashing start with breakfast and beautiful shoes. I met with London-based shoe designer Aruna Seth and her fabulous PR Nia at chic spot The Wolseley. In between tea, crumpets, berry compote, and trying on Aruna’s exquisite butterfly flats (I left with two pairs…black patent and nude peep toe flats), we chatted tomorrow’s big event, one which Aruna and Nia have high hopes for.
Some weeks ago Aruna was contacted by Kate’s camp requesting several pairs of her glam and gorgeous shoes. Upwards of 15 pairs were sent and a thank you email received stating the shoes were under review for the day, but no information further to that would be released until the wedding. Like the rest of the world, Aruna is waiting to see what Kate (and her maid of honor Pippa) wears, with fingers crossed it’s her princess-worthy slippers.
I for one can share that I will be wearing my new Aruna Seth shoes for the Royal Wedding. I can also recommend you choose one of her creations for your wedding day. We just shot her turquoise butterfly platform pump for our fall issue and they truly are spectacular. In Canada, Aruna Seth is available exclusively at Powder.
Good luck tomorrow Aruna…we hope to see your shoes coming down the aisle at Westminster.
