It’s no secret over in Stuart towers that I have quite the fondness for a galaxy print. There is an alternative reality where instead of events I’m chilling with Patrick Moore, chinning the wag about The Sky at Night. Anyway it’s pretty safe to say that I was fair delighted to find out that we in Glasgow had a fancy lass painting up shoes in my fave print. A wee bit more pleased when she got in touch about having her shoes used in the next ITCOW.
Dawntroversial Shoes – brain child of Glasgow girl Dawn Smith, is hand painted custom shoes. Glitter and stars and swirly night skies set the back drop for her shoes. Think peep toes, wedges in boots in vermilion’s, cerise and chartreuse. Dawn’s a fascination with space and astrological photography is a life long passion – and her galaxy inspired shoes are obviously very close to her heart. Inspired by meteorites, swirling nebula’s and colours her shoes offer a unique addition to any shoe fiends wardrobe.
What I like about Dawntroversial is the sense of fun that comes with the collection. The shoot with the super talented Laura McKinnon features some gorge models looking like something straight out of a 50’s sci-fi movie playing with the shoes, wearing them on their shoulders, hands and the like. For me it works.
It’s hard to believe Dawn’s only being in business for a couple of months – with articles in The Edit and Creative Boom – her galaxy inspired shoes have captured the imagination of us Glasgow girls. I can’t wait to see them on the catwalk for ITCOW….and no doubt I will be batting my lashes at the boyfriend come anniversary time. My fondness for the pink glitter Hollywood shoes is pretty set to go down in history as one of those epic loves.
My love affair with shoes is becoming an issue.
You can order yourself a pair of custom shoes from Dawntroversial through her facebook page – prices are kicking around the £75 – no bad for a custom pair of shoes eh ladies?
