LFW RAMP REVIEW:
PAYAL KOTHARI’S SHOE BIBLIOTHEQUE FOOTWEAR COLLECTION HAUTE STEPPED AT THE TALENT BOX- The Veruschka label by Payal Kothari, known for its exquisite handcrafted shoes, had much to offer in her new collection called “Shoe Bibliotheque” at the Talent Box show. Inspired by the lovely city, Paris, the line showcased timeless designs with a modern feel.
Models walked tall in pumps, peep toes, wedges and stilettos which were nothing short of stunning. In bright colours like red, orange, gold and bright blue along with floral printed leather the shoes looked magnificent, almost like something out of a fairy tale or a fashionista’s dream novel.
With sharp lines, the Payal managed to design the shoes to seem as though they enveloped the foot in gorgeous leather and satin. Keeping true to her concept of balancing style and comfort,
Payal Kothari used straps on the ankle as well as zips at the back of the shoe as a way to support the foot. Taking it a step further, she also made beautiful ‘ankle cuffs’, by using thick straps and then adding patterned embellishments like gems and studs.
Famous actress Tanisha Mukherjee, the show stopper, stepped out in a pair of tall, teal coloured heels with print detail and red accents.
With her spectacular shoe making skills, it’s no wonder that Payal Kothari’s Veruschka shoes have graced the pages of famous fashion magazines like Elle, Verve and L’Officiel.

KIM SHOE BY VERUSCHKA
WHAT YOUR SHOES SAY ABOUT U….AS SAID BY FOOTWEAR DESIGNER PAYAL KOTHARI OF VERUSCHKA.

The shoes that you wear say a lot about the kind of person that you are. Yes, sometimes you can judge a book by its cover. A shoe represents one’s level of refined taste. Sometimes it is just a perception but then again, it is someone’s reality





HIGH HEELS:
SANTIAGO SHOE BY VERUSCHKA

High heels are associated with sensuality, attitude, femininity and fashion. She is a woman who considers herself to be sexy and one who wants others to perceive her to be sexy. When walking in a high heel, the entire lower body is thrown into a state of tension resembling that of female sexual arousal.

A woman’s high heel makes her feel powerful and gives her a sense of status…the higher and slimmer the heel the greater her social status. High Heels were known as ‘limousine shoes,” indicating that they are worn by women who don’t need to actually walk. According to a New York Times article I read, it wrote ‘High Heels are for those who pay other people to do their walking.’  The high heeled shoe carries an attitude that is almost larger than the heel it supports. 


KARMA WEDGE BY VERUSCHKA

WEDGES: A woman who wears a wedge heel is one that is fashionable and yet prefers comfort over vanity. She is a working woman; sensible and one who likes to make her own coffee so she can smell the aroma when the coffee pot gurgles. She likes to enjoy her journey, not just the destination.Wedges: A women who wears a wedge heel is one that is fashionable yet prefers comfort over vanity.

MAMBO FLAT BY VERUSCHKA

FLATS: A woman who wears flats exuberates the feeling of liberation. A woman with flats can take bigger strides thus feeling empowered. Generally, women in creative fields prefer to wear flats. It’s for a woman who wants comfort and the freedom from being bonded on account of her shoes.

A woman who is open minded tends to wear flats with minimum straps, thus exposing the cleavage of her toe…she likes to be subtly sexy yet comfortable. Bold shoes are considered in many cultures as one aspect of women’s social and sexual liberation. Another type of flat called the Birkenstock acquired a reputation of being worn by hippies & hikers or ones who embrace nature.





BOOTS: Women worship their boots. A great example of such women is apparent when you watch the two very famous Hollywood movies Poison Ivy and Pretty Women. Women feel like as long as they have the right boots they can combat any obstacle that may come her way. 
The boot conveys a different message than any other kind of shoe. It draws significant attention to a woman’s sensual nature by naturally riding up their calves and thighs! The power here lies not in the heel but how high they ride up the leg.  Its phallic characteristic is what makes the boot so sexy and sensual. Initially, boots were worn only by men but women gradually adopted them thereby indicating that she is his equal.  



SNEAKERS: This is a shoe for the adventurous, athletic, comfort seeking woman. It is for a woman who has a strong self image and consciously cares of her body. Sneakers are no longer just worn for running or working out at the gym.  They have morphed into becoming one of the most fashionable items.

In the early days, sneakers were only worn by men and were invented for tennis. They were only made in the color white but as women slowly began playing the sport the sneaker took on more colors and styles. In other words, the shoe was revolutionized by women and today it is worn in abundance by both men and women. It is essentially worn by people who believe in high-tech functionalism. This owes to the fact that sneakers today are so very modernized and scientific in their construction.
