Cinderella and a wayward glass slipper gave us a little taste of it early on, Dorothy seconded with a ruby version while their modern-day counterpart, Carrie Bradshaw, and her amplified affinity for anything with a heel sealed the deal – a pair of shoes, especially the right ones, can truly change a woman’s life.
Marilyn Monroe immortalized the thought in her now famous quote, “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.”
High end online shoe store Shoescribe.com took these as inspiration and traveled the world from London and Paris, NYC to Toronto to meet up with six female icons for their Holiday campaign; and asked them “What’s the right shoe for you?”. Each completely different with just a few things in common – success, style and a love for shoes. In each interview they give us a little career advice, their future goals, fondest shoe memories and style tips; in addition to their selections of the 4 styles they’ll be wearing to conquer their world!
Illustrator/film maker/photographer Quentin Jones takes us through her understated cool girl style. She goes through her favourite projects, gives us her views on the internet for artists, and offers the very valuable, yet sound advice of not watching what others are doing but focussing on making your style (of work) the best that it can be.
