Bella Throne in Nanette for Who What Wear
Blogger Claire Geist styles Nanette into her summer wardrobe.
The hand painted shoe. With only days before the show as the final looks began to be styled for what would eventually hit the runway, Nanette decided the grey snake-embossed heel that she originally wanted was now too light for the rest of the collection. Julie, our print designer, came to the rescue once again.
"I presented Nanette with a few different options and then together we decided which would work best. First I tried a light grey outer layer [on the shoe], then we tried matter black all over and Nanette liked that best. I only used black black acrylic paint. It was great because the acrylic dried quickly and matte so it looked like a professional finish… But don’t worry, for production we’re going to do it correctly."
