The Wizard Of Shoes



We knew it was on the cards but here's a first look at Sergio Rossi's version of Dorothy's famous ruby red shoes, as part of a particularly fashionable commemoration of the 70th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz. Incorporating CRYSTALLIZED™ Swarovski Elements, Sergio Rossi joins 19 other designers including Betsey Johnson, Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik to reinterpret the character's iconic slippers as part of a showcase and auction to raise money for the Elizabeth Glaser Paediatric AIDS foundation. The fruits of their fashionable labor will be unveiled at Saks Fifth Avenue on September 4 before moving to Bryant Park on September 5 for the start of New York Fashion Week. Public viewings are also planned throughout 2009. We can't wait to see the rest.
