Cinderella has taken the runway in a certain aspect. Every girl remembers the glass slipper Cinderella left behind at the ball and the wonderful ending when the prince found Cinderella, put the heel back onto her foot and all her dreams came true. Fairytales have found spring 2013 with clear plastic heels hitting the runway in full force.
“Clear plastic heels take to the runway”
“Pure and Light” Riccardo Tisci said backstage at the Givenchy spring 2013 show. His models walked down the runway with tight pulled back chignons, gold covenant style chokers, airy translucent outfits and architecture inspired clear plastic heels with touches of wood and gold. www.givenchy.com
