Charlotte Olympia is no stranger when it comes to fancy and fashionable shoes. I’ve been following her amazing collection for a while now and she never fails to impress me. Actually she impresses me so much I decided to dedicate this post for her. From the unique sole-designs to poise and trendy styles, this London-based designer has proven herself to be one of the most talented and creative shoe makers out there. Her signature styles of romance, glamor and femininity make her shoes not only interesting to wear but also to stare. Whenever you need to hide your non-pedicured feet, you can definitely hide them in her soles!
Fans of animal prints and colorful patterns must be very familiar with this Italian designer. Roberto Cavalli was born in Florence, Italy on November 15, 1940. His signature design is not only sexy and extravagant but also feminine and elaborate.
He has been designing outfits for music tour of Shakira, Christina Aguilera and Michael Jackson. He’s also popular among celebrities such as Victoria Beckham. He has also created marvelous designs for red carpet events.
He was the first designer to hire Kate Mass after she got involved with the drug abuse problem and since then Kate has starred in his campaigns; Fall/Winter 2007/2008.
Cavalli has several companies:

Another favorite designer of mine, Marc Jacobs. Actually Marc Jacobs has been a famous conversation between me and my sister. We both are very excited when we found out that the first Marc Jacobs boutique is opening soon in our prestigious mall. We are curious what style they’re gonna show us here.
Marc Jacobs was born in New York city on April 9, 1963. He attended Parsons School of Design in NYC and won the Perry Ellis Gold Thimble Award in 1984. He was also rewarded Chester Weinberg Gold Thimble Award and the Design Student of the Year at the same year.
While studying in Parsons, Marc sold his first hand-knit sweaters and formed a partnership with Jacobs Duffy Design Inc. In 1987, he was awarded the New Fashion Talent from CFDA Perry Ellis Award.
Marc currently is the creative director for Louis Vuitton, and his own line of collection consists of Marc Jacobs, Stinky Rat, Little Marc and Marc by Marc Jacobs consist of clothing, bags, shoes, fragrance and accessories. He launched his watch collection in 2006 with classic and vintage stylish theme.
You’ll find his boutiques around the world; San Francisco, New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Taipei, Tokyo, Hong Kong and of course, Jakarta.
Whenever I think about shoes, there are several names come to my mind and the one on top of the list would be this french designer, Christian Louboutin. I have put his shoes on my vision board and I know someday I’ll get them all!
Talking about elegant pumps and sexy sandals, this man understands it all. Starting his design career at a very early age, there’s no question about his skills and imagination. Louboutin was born in 1963 and he had always been interested in women fashion since he was a kid. He was a freelancer in high-end fashion houses such as Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Maud Frison and Sidonie Larizzie, both in Italy and France.
In 1992, he opened his flagship boutique in Paris and that’s when Christian Louboutin was created.
At present, his fans include celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan, Gwen Stefani, Cameron Diaz, Catherine Zeta Jones, Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie, Kirsten Dunst and many more, not to mention the royal families.
His signature red soles will always remain special and one of the kind. For more information about this shoe genius, visit his official site!

Believe it or not, I was offered to work in DVF boutique as the marketing promotion here in my country a while ago. But I had to turn them down because of several reasons. It was a very proud moment though considering DVF has always been on my favorite list.
And now I wanna tell you more about this incredible and sophisticated lady who’s famous for her wrap-dresses and vintage style.
DVF was born in Brussels, Belgium and she studied Economics. In 1969, DVF moved to New York with her husband where she started her own business selling knit dresses. She first introduced her signature wrap-dress in 1973. As a matter of fact, it was so popular that New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art decided to display them.
And now, she offers more than just dresses (obviously). DVF has expanded her business to selling fine jewelry, fragrance, cosmetics and accessories. Her boutiques are spreaded all around the world from Paris to Hong Kong, Miami to even Jakarta.
