Lately I’ve been working on the second collection for Royal Vintage Shoes.
Wait, what? You haven’t even seen the first collection yet!
I know, don’t worry! I’m having to adjust to fashion-industry-norms and design and prototype new collections way in advance of when they’ll actually arrive. It might seem crazy, but right now I’m working on next Summer’s collection!
And it’s gonna be 1920s, woo! So here’s what’s inspiring me…
Mary, Rose, and Edith from Downton Abbey. How can these gals not be inspiring? Particularly it’s Rose’s shoes in the middle that are so stunning.
There’s certainly no lack of interesting original designs to choose from. I’m planning 4 designs in two colorways each, for a total of 8 options of the most iconic and beautiful 1920s shoes. Some will be for evening (think metallic leathers), others for day (spectators, oxfords, a nice basic mary jane).
