Step Right up! Selfridges: Shoe Carnival

16th March 2013

Love for Fashion blogger Meera Sharma and I popped into Selfridges this week and stumbled across Selfridges’ latest theme- Shoe Carnival. I wasn’t a fan of the whole No Noise theme they hosted previously but am loving the Shoe carnival. The windows are fabulously fun and the in-store events and exhibitions are fab.

There are many exclusives at the Shoe festival. Nicholas Kirkwood has created a beautiful four piece collection exclusively for the event inspired by Disney’s Oz: The Great and Powerful and there are other treats from Rupert Sanderson, Charlotte Olympia and Katie Grand x Hogan.

It’s not all about the ladies though, the men’s event are equally fab and I’m sure Oliver Sweeney’s ‘Tattoo Your Shoe’ will be the most popular. A tattoo artist will be in-store to literally tattoo your Sweeney’s.

Selfridges: A hundred years of Windows.

8th Jan 2013

I’m a costume drama kind a girl. It stems from my teenage obsession with Catherine Cookson and Bronte books. Soooo you name it any BBC/ITV period drama that airs- I’m watching it. I loved the first episode of Mr. Selfridge on Sun and the ohhhh-ahhhh moment came when the first window displays were unveiled. At the time they caused a stir and continue to do so- my favorite in recent years was the Louboutin take-over. Here’s a quick post on some of the Selfridges windows over the years.
