I was definitely inspired by the history behind the brand. It made me appreciate the designs more after knowing how they were made keeping in mind the core objective of Rene Caovilla to design high end evening shoes.

Inspired by the brand's identity, I designed a shoes that is suitable for every occasion. The shoes can be worn for dinner, weddings, parties, and during the day for an extra chic look since it's black. It combines two of my favourite pieces from Caovilla which are the Cleo Satin Pump and the Cleo Sandal Maxi Strass. I maintained the height feature in the Sandals with a new look. Having a pointy yet strapy sandal with crosses is very attractive; classic yet trendy.

Inspired by the women of today who base their purchases on the ever fluctuating economy and who love to buy timeless pieces that transform into secondary looks, the "Goose Pump" offers women modern practicality in its design by embodying both simple sophistication an a sexy upbeat look all in one. 

 

The pump transforms itself from one look to the other by adding a simple and sleek Swarvoski studded accessory to the heel of the pump turning into a second and completely different night time look. The added accessory is bedazzled in a way very similar to that of the "Rene Caovilla" signature looks.

Have you heard the phrase "Dream Shoes" this is exactly what I have designed in this exquisite unique piece, a piece that is the dream to every class lady, jewels around their feet, a beauty that shines and inspired by the most glamorous elements that could catch the eye. Think of breathtaking diamond cuts, classic chandeliers, crystals that reflect its beauty everywhere, a powerful lady that steps into a room full of crowd and all she needs is a mesmerising Caovilla pair of shoes that will take every breath in that room. This is what we are talking about, that is Rene Caovilla lady chic, "Signora Chic" that will become the talk of the town.

My design for Rene Caovilla will be Satan black shoe with wrap crystal snake shape, the inspiration I got is from the signature Caovilla snake sandals but I thought more about the local girls here if they want get a shoe and how they care about wearing this shape if attending an event such as a wedding or other banquet type party, the high heeled shoes make a grand return. Most women will wear this to complement their dresses here in UAE, They will either match or contrast with the dress that they have chosen to wear, it might be in 4 basic colors Black, grey, white, nude, the white could be a bridal shoe as well.

 

I just wanted to create the feeling of walking on runway with any style of dress/outfit seeks an elegant expensive shoe.
