A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend Wittner’s Melbourne Spring Fashion Week show and the exclusive unveiling of their ‘Everything White’ collection afterwards, making for quite an interesting night. For those of you unaware of the brand: Wittner is a footwear retailer in Australia with almost 70 stores nationwide and who celebrated their 100th anniversary just last year!
Now, the Wittner team clearly know how to stand out because their show was the most energetic I've seen - their models performing full-on dance routines in the new collection and all in high heels, mind you. I couldn't help but smile throughout because it was nice to see something different to the typical walk-down-the-catwalk-and-back type of show.
If you attended you would know that we were met with a lovely array of black and white, with great tans, nudes and metallics thrown in. The pointed-toe stilettos were a nice refresher to have in between models and the silver foiled and metallic beauties brought out some disco vibes. Personally open-toed-ankle-boots aren’t my cup of tea, but I am a woman who likes a good thick ankle strap and chunky heel, so my shoe needs were pleasantly met as Wittner did plenty of those. Also hence why I made sure to snap the white pair above, which not only had mesh incorporated into it but also a metallic heel – yes please??
The after party was set at their Collins Street store where we had refreshments and watched the collection video playing in the shop window out on the street before getting to wander around and see the collection first hand. It was a great start to the week and I’d like to thank Michael Wittner, the family and everyone associated for inviting me along to experience this lovely evening.
On a side note: It's 100% harder to photograph shoes as everyone’s moving so fast, but between you and me, Levi’s also used Wittner's new collection for most of their female models (that I’m aware of) in their show, so you'll get to see the more of the collection when I put that post up next week :-)
