We were so excited to get to be a part of the celebrity stylist and fashion designer Anthony Franco's Fall 2011 Runway show during LA Fashion Week! Franco's collection was inspired by the bad-boy and swagger of the 1983 film "Scarface" and the sensuality of Helmut Newton's photography. He limited his color palette to (a very effective) 5 colors and successfully captured the smoldering sex appeal of the "gangster's gal" according the the LA Times.
Below is a bigger picture of the custom shoes by milk & honey shown above. We love the use of color blocking here!
Not only were Franco's designs amazing, but the overall intimate feel in the staging of the show created a great atmosphere. Aside from being excited to see our shoes among such great fashion company, we had a great time!
Another beautiful custom shoe featured in the show is pictured below. We loved the black and gold combination as it managed to look both elegant and rockstar at the same time:
You can see more of the collection through WWD's coverage.
In addition to being an amazing designer, Anthony Franco has styled Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Colbie Caillat, Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Angelina Jolie, January Jones, Eva Longoria, Halle Berry among many others.
He also styles for many TV Campaigns including the Cotton one we all love. We can't help but share this adorable picture of Kate Bosworth by Franco.
