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.
