New York Fashion Week Spring 2010 Sneak Peek: American shoe designer Lisa F Pliner has been selected by Molly Grad, head of design for international swim and beach wear brand Gottex, to create shoes for their up-coming runway fashion show at the Tent at Bryant Park.
“With swimwear the shoe is essential”, said Grad. “The shape of the shoe affects the silhouette of the body. I feel Lisa’s work is both sensual and modern.”
“I was delighted when I was contacted by Molly to create the footwear for her debut runway show. Living in Miami I totally understand Molly’s idea of creating swimwear that is so chic that it can be worn as ready-to-wear. We were fortunate enough to have met in person to start our collaboration together”, said Pliner.
The styles that will debut on the runway on September 14th will be available for wholesale purchase during December shoe market week in New York.
