Fashion designer Bruno Schiavi just came out with his all-new shoe collection. Schiavi Shoes was launched a couple of days ago and with it also came the unveiling of footwear designs made by several Australian personalities like actress Kate Ritchie, model Megan Gale, and actress Toni Pearen. The project was launched to help Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, a group promoting breast cancer research and awareness. The celebrity-designed pairs will be auctioned off as a fundraising effort.
Sky News also reports that the celebrity shoe designs will be fleshed out in Italy and made to fit the top five bidders of each design. Now this makes me think twice about this whole thing. On one hand, it’s great that it’s all being done for a good cause. But on the other hand, it’s bound to weigh a bit heavily on the environment, what with the materials and the shipping. Thoughts, anyone?
