Aaryn West Shoes By Nalini Arora

nalini-for-aaryn-west-1

Last October while exhibiting at the LA Textile Show I had the pleasure of meeting the one and only LA Shoegirl, a style savvy footwear designer named Nalini Arora. If you’re familiar with this blog, you may recall that she featured one of our prints and did a mini interview a while back, in her swatch of the week.

This time she’s really hooked us up, incorporating one of her favorite prints from our collection into a custom-designed (and extremely drool-worthy) pair of shoes. Boots, actually, and the ones I’ve been coveting for a while.. and just to be an overachiever she designed an extra pair for herself! (Yes, thank you, I’ll take one of each, please.) I love how she really deconstructs her inspiration and it’s relationship to the final product. Make sure to see the original post for all the great details she put into her design process!

Last month I was delighted to meet Nalini Arora, a blogger and freelance shoe designer going by the name of LA Shoegirl. Well today I’m even more delighted to have her feature an Aaryn West print as her swatch of the week, posted along with a mini Q&A session with me. Be sure to check out her blog for the full post and interview! A big thanks to Nalini, and stay tuned for a possible future collaboration!
