Launch Party for Princess London Shoes and "Dirty Soap"
(Long Island, N.Y.) On September 13th HauteDiary.com hosted a special press event for the Princess London Shoe Brand with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres from 3:00 to 6:00 P.M. at the trendy Ruia Boutique in Soho.
The specialty boutique welcomed their fashion guests and press with a cozy ambiance of an elegantly decorated living room emulating a London flat or a Parisian country French decorated apartment. As guests sipped cocktails in the background a Project Runway episode was playing on the 55 inch flat screen TV on the 2nd floor of the shoe boutique. Everyone was enjoying the cookies and cream, delicious chocolate cookies, yogurt covered pretzels and the tastiest cocktails by Pharrell Williams. My crew and I were enthralled with the peach flavored cocktail as we appreciated the fabulous shoes that were showcased.
The exquisitely embellished shoe collection was displayed on silver platters decorated with pearls and multi colored jewels as well as precious stones. The collection looked as if it was inspired right out of the whimsical fairytale Cinderella.
I had a chance to chat with Priscilla Monteiro, the founder and creator of this unique shoe brand. "What made you decide to design shoes," I inquired? "I have always had a foot fetish," she admitted.
Princess London shoes started in 2010 as a customized women's footwear company derived from the edgy streets of London and New York. The line features upscale evening wear for the women who seeks a statement shoe. Shoes are embellished with Swarovski crystals and have touches of flowers, spikes, and pearls as well as exotic stones. Princess London Shoes are the perfect shoe accessory for any occasion from the red carpet to weddings or a night out on the town. Unlike most footwear companies, shoes can be customized to each customer's specific interest. The shoes are in high demand and sought after by the most famous celebrities. These glamorous shoes are currently available in limited quantities.
To promote the Princess London Shoes brand further, The Volstead Restaurant at 125 E. 54th Street hosted an after party and Grammy Award Winning Stylist Eric Santiago presented giveaways to twenty of the most stylish attendees.
Celebrities that attended to give their support included: Derrick J from Oxygen Network's "Hair Battle", Dr. Michelle from Fashion Manuscript, Clarence X. McGann from Condenast, Angela Helm from Uptown Magazine and Miss Dominican Republic.
