Shoes of Prey collaboration with Gretchen Jones @ New York fashion week.

Winner of Project Runway season 8: planet conscious Gretchen Jones has gone on to create her 70s Americana inspired ready to wear collections with great success as well as launching her own jewellery line. The Brooklyn-based designer has joined forces with the online shoe company “Shoes of Prey” for spring/summer 2013 designing a fun and versatile collection revealed during New York fashion week. The collaboration combines the sturdy appeal of a wooden wedge with the flexibility and comfort of soft leather and suede in three snappy colour combinations: fuschia/tobacco, cream/tobacco and black. This look encapsulates the hippy chick look that we all crave and yearn for once the sun starts to shine and the birds start to chirp. I know it is hard to yearn for next spring/summer 2013 wardrobe especially when we have barely scraped the surface of our new winter wardrobe...but such is the wonderful world of fashion...it keeps you on your designer shod toes.

A little about “Shoes of Prey”: this is the first online company in the world that offers you an opportunity to not only design your dream shoe but also the possibility of choosing from millions of design combinations in a myriad of colours and materials that can take you from silk to snakeskin . You can unleash your inner Manolo or Loubou by designing your own ballet flats,two tone wedges,up to a slinky 6 inch heel number from prices starting at £100.You can choose from different widths and up to a ladies European 49. And...If that wasn’t choice enough, if the pair doesn’t fit properly...Shoes of Prey will make you a new pair without hesitation.

An absolute must for every budding shoe designer who wants to stand out from the fashion forward crowd in her very own, one of a kind pair of shoes....of Prey!
