Why do designers…

Why do designers and stylists adhere to the adage “if the shoe doesn’t fit, wear it anyhow?” I was so sorry to read the NY Times coverage of the potentially career-ending walk of Michelle at the Gucci show. She’s a lovely new face who no doubt was coerced into wearing shoes that didn’t fit properly. After all, do you make a fuss about the shoes in your first Gucci appearance? Isn’t that the job of the divas? I have dressed far too many shows where the girls were forced to walk the runway in shoes with broken heels, stuffed toes, loose ankle straps and my personal favorite – shared shoes. With all the time and money spent on the clothes, the models should be entitled to put their best foot forward.
