RCFA x Fenwick of Bond Street #ShoeCorner Collaboration

Fenwick window fnl 2

I am very excited to announce my collaboration with Fenwick of Bond Street. We are working together to promote the launch of their Shoe Corner, which opens tomorrow (July 11).

What’s so great about that? Well apart from the fact that it’s going to be an exquisite 4,143 sq ft space transformed into an alluring Gatsby-esque playground for shoe lovers – displaying 35 brands from Acne to Zanotti – it will be the first time a department store will feature a shoe department on the ground floor.

I had the honour of being sketched by fashion illustrator and celebrity portrait artist David Downton, who has worked for Vogue and various other publications sketching the likes of Cate Blanchett for the 50th anniversary of Vogue Australia as well as Dita von Teese, Iman, Sarah Jessica Parker and many more.

The illustration will be placed in the windows of Fenwick of Bond Street from Friday (July 11) and remain there for the summer alongside Hilary Alexander’s sketch.

I wore my favourite Osman Resort 2014 dress on the day with Topshop flats.

In the sketch you can see me slinging an orange Valentino ‘Rockstud’ pump over my shoulder.

More details about this exciting project will follow.

    I’ve been visiting this site for years, clicking the link to Vogue with your illustration gave me chills! You are so hard-working, and spot-on, and you’ve become such a big influence to us your readers, you really deserve all of this. Congratulations!

    And, ahem… perhaps this is a big step in your advocacy against black pumps and triple stacked platforms destroying people’s outfits?

  10. TL July 11, 2014 at 02:17 #

    Oh my God that’s wonderful, congratulations FC. Love the sketch and love the dress you wore, you look absolutely gorgeous. Hope we get to see more photos of you and your styles.

    FC, I am just wondering if you get a copy (or the original) of that fabulous portrait to hang in your home. I hope so!!! Congrats and thank you for taking us along for this glorious ride….

  18. sophie July 10, 2014 at 18:14 #

    FC what was Mr. FC’s reaction to this? I’d be smug *g*

    • Catherine Kallon July 10, 2014 at 18:16 #

      He was really proud. has no clue about fashion, yet very supportive nonetheless

      • sophie July 10, 2014 at 18:21 #

        You gotta work your magic on him FC, like Diane Kruger on Mr. Kruger. But you wouldn’t tolerate sneakers on a red carpet unlike Queen Krugelz. 😉

  19. HM July 10, 2014 at 17:35 #


    CONGRATULATIONS FC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now that I’ve let that out of my system…I just have to say that as a follower of your blog since god knows when, this is truly a well deserved honour! I follow David on instagram and he is an absolute talent…I am green with envy! Enjoy the experience FC and thank you for sharing with us your journey.

    P.S. If Loreal comes knocking on your door next and you start doing rounds at Cannes…I expect big poofy Elie Saab dresses embellished to the core day in day out! HAHA 😉

    • Catherine Kallon July 10, 2014 at 17:45 #

      Thank you so much…now you have me dreaming of walking on the red carpet at Cannes alongside Blake and Aishwarya in an Elie Saab gown…what a Cinderella moment that would be

  20. Nicky July 10, 2014 at 16:43 #

    Wow that’s so exciting! Love the sketch and those Valentino pumps! Hope you get some free shoes LOL
