Shoe Designer Of 2010 – Brian Atwood

It took nearly two years, but we finally found a footwear designer to take over from YSL and Christian Louboutin.

Brian Atwood heels dominated the red carpet in 2010.

I truly believe that every red carpet event was graced with the designers popular heels.

The all had their own identifiable names: The Marlo, the Balleto, the Katie Lee, the Dante, the Drama, the Harrison and of course the most popular…

…the Maniac.

The comfortable heels with a hidden platform are a favourite of Katy Perry, Demi Moore and Victoria Beckham.

I wouldn’t be surprise if next season the designer names heels after his famous clients.

Brian Atwood Fall 2010 – “It’s All About The Heel”

During Fall 2010 Milan Fashion Week, I visited the Brian Atwood studio to view his Fall 2010 collection.

As I breathlessly scanned the hundreds of pumps, boots, sandals and ankle boots on display one thing instantly stood out.

“It’s All About The Heel.”

Each piece had something decorative on the heel to make it stand out.

Diamante, chains, contrasting coloured heels, bows, and snake-skin heels added a touch of flair and vitality to the collection.

I really appreciated this detail because not only does it make the collection truly distinctive, but it also gives Atwood his signature for the season therefore making his heels easily identifiable for me.

Celebs love Atwood’s decorative heels.

Victoria Beckham wore Atwood’s ‘RZ’ boots which have a chain detail down the back. She also loves his nude ‘Drama’ pumps with a black heel. Nicole Scherzinger is a fan too.

Megan Fox wore Atwood’s ‘Donna’ patent pumps and Ashley Greene recently wore Atwood’s Bordeaux suede ‘Cristal’ heels with a gold ribbons.

Heels just got sexy thanks to Brian Atwood.
