Melbourne: Ruby Slipper Collection

dorothoty-red-slippers1A friend who just returned from Melbourne got us pictures of an exhibition in celebration of the 70th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz. 18 eminent designers were invited to reinterpret Dorothy’s iconic Ruby Slippers for modern times, using Crystallized Swarovski elements. This internationally acclaimed Ruby Slipper Collection is part of a global tour displayed in fashionable cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Dubai, Berlin, Paris, London & of course, Melbourne! It’s a real treat to be able to share an exhibition that isn’t making its way to Singapore. Photos were taken on a point and shoot, not to mention it must have been hard to avoid having your reflection too… so do cut the photo quality some slack! x)

    Hi love your blog…
    Do you know where I could purchase the Diane Von Furstenberg shoes? I adore them!

    hey katie! dee, who made this post, is currently in nyc working on a launch for a new designer. where are you based? i think these shoes are probably a tad difficult to get our hands on, but the staff at the diane von furstenberg store will probably be more helpful!
