Pensole FN Platform Challenge @ Stitch Factory – Winning design (Cosmo) by Chris Dixon

Here’s a look at the winning design, ‘Cosmo’ by Christopher Dixon for Pensole’s & FN Platform’s Challenge that was held at the Stitch Factory in Las Vegas –

My challenge in the Dress Category was to design a bridal shoe for Nina shoes.

The inspiration comes from the bride, her dress transitions from the ceremony (conservative) to the reception (sexy). I wanted the shoe to do the same. For the ceremony, the lace veil covers the diamond style heel tied in a bow with a satin ribbon. For the reception the veil flips up and the ribbon will be tied up the leg.

Congrats to Christopher for winning! Check out more of his inspired project, below.
