After meeting Christian Siriano, a week later I got another fabulous opportunity of meeting and interviewing Edoardo Caovilla before his meet and greet event in the Rene Caovilla flagship store in The Pearl Qatar.
Rene Caovilla is without a doubt one of the biggest luxury shoe brands in the world and the only real Venetian luxury shoe brand. We talked a lot about his day-to-day life as the creative director of his grandfather's brand, as well as how important his customers are to him when he designs his shoe collections. We also spoke about the Spring/Summer 2015 collection. The latest collection features Oxford shoes and flats, which are studded with Swarovski crystals. Edoardo explained that he recognized that the modern-day woman needs practical but feminine and stylish shoes while she is out and about in the morning at work or running errands. The rest of the collection features kitten heels, sling-backs and stilettos with polka dot prints, stripes and combinations of different textures and clashing prints.
I asked him why all his shoes have silver glittery soles and his reply was "so women can feel like they are walking on the stars." Designing genius and a charmer!
