We know the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2015 has been taped, which makes not being able to watch it quite yet even more unbearable. Luckily, this year’s chosen shoe designer, the esteemed Brian Atwood, has given a small, but tantalizing peek at the sexy heels for the annual show. From the design sketches to the actual footwear styles shown on the runway, see the Brian Atwood shows for Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2015!
With his reputation of producing some of Hollywood’s sexiest shoes, Atwood’s designs are sure to be a wow moment when the show is aired on Dec. 8. His designs are seen all over Hollywood already, on celebrities such as Beyoncé and Taylor Swift, but also on this year’s VS artist choices of Selena Gomez and Ellie Goulding. His shoes are clearly popular with a young, vibrant audience, and his expert use of feathers makes him seem like the perfect choice for the extravagant hype of the Victoria’s Secret fashion show.
“There were no limits on the creativity – glamorous, over the top, sexy was without a doubt the mood,” Atwood said describing his designs. Knowing the shoe designer didn’t have to hold back on his end should be more than enough to get your brain turning on the possibilities for the looks on the runway. This really amps up the excitement, and will make for a long month waiting for it to finally air!
“Dressing the feet of these Angels is a personal dream come true. The result is what I believe to be a true,” Atwood continued, on his work with the fashion show. “The result is what I believe to be a true reflection of the DNA of Brian Atwood…”
We know he designed shoes to play along with the show’s butterfly theme, in a tempting display of purple and red, and of course he designed for the Ice Angels, with fur and white booties. This little snippet into the design process is all we really need to sate us until the show airs; our minds will be able to wander from there!
Knowing Atwood’s fabulous use of feathers in his past, we definitely could have expected this would be the case. But hearing the designer say it himself is a true relief. And it is always a great thing to hear when a designer is happy with a collaboration, especially when it is on such a large scale as the VS fashion show, which Atwood himself refers to as “the Super Bowl of fashion shows.”
And rightly so! Sports fans wait all year for the Super Bowl, while others wait for the event for the hype of commercials. On the other hand, in the world of scandalous fashion, fans wait all year for December, when the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is aired, taking away the suspense of what the brand will come up with next for the new, yearly extravaganza. Being a fan of both industries just means you have a lot to look forward to during each year, which tends to ease the pain of waiting a little bit!
In the fashion industry alone, however, there are so many annual events, but Victoria’s Secret really paves its own path, with the exuberance of a high energy party while showcasing their brand and their models in the best way possible. With performers, scantily clad models, and fabulous footwear to top it all off, each year is a treat for the fashion lover.
We know there will be feathers. Lots of them: on the Angel’s backs and on their feet as well. And with Brian Atwood at the helm of footwear innovation, we know we’re in great hands.
