Spring 2007 Fashion Week Day 5: Vivienne Westwood + Nine West = Not So Cheap Fashion

I love Vivienne Westwood, so when I heard that the women who some credit with inventing punk was teaming up with Nine West to premiere a line of lower priced (but certainly not cheap) shoes I was thrilled. The shoes, ranging in price from $160 to $350 a pair, will be available at selection Nine West stores. It’s an effort by Nine West to pump up it’s sales and image after years of dismal sales. Unfortunately, the collection will only be available for four weeks.

Viv will be in NYC today, at Macy’s Herald Square, chatting up the line. It’s suppose to be a consumer event, but of course, only the folks at Vogue, Elle and other people who would normal never set foot in a Macy’s store will be invited.

From Fashion Week Daily

Vivienne Westwood will be making a personal appearance at Macy’s Herald Square on September 12 to promote her new line of shoes designed in collaboration with Nine West. Vogue and Macy’s have sent out invitations to attend what is being billed as a primarily consumer-driven event, but look for a healthy sprinkling of the industry to be on hand for the Q&A session that will be led by Mary Alice Stephenson.

I will definitely be in attendance.

    I AM SO JEALOUS! Vivienne is my idol and has been for years. I adore her and her amazing clothing.. I’m saving up for at least one piece of her Nine West line!!

    So I’ve viewed VW’s collection @ the Macy’s in Union Square and I really wasn’t impressed.  The prices are quite high for pieces that are so trendy I’m sure they won’t be wearable next Fall.  This is one collection that I’ll be passing on.

    What I want to know is can they make a shoe that’s at least 2 1/2 or 2 3/4 inches?  As a person who has worn heels all her life, an bum knee now forces me to wear lower heels, but I will put on at least a 2 inch or more heel.

    This is ridiculous!

    I was in NYC for a fashion week-inspired shopping trip…would have loved to have checked out the shoe line and then been rebuffed by Viv for not having a press pass.
