We all know how shoes can make or break an outfit, so it comes as no surprise that bridal shoes have become an important part of any bride’s wedding day ensemble. Gone are the traditional plain Jane white or ivory bridal shoes! Nowadays, we see so many fabulous shoes featuring all sorts of colours, pretty embellishments, bows, studs and glitter peeking out from underneath wedding gowns… which is why I was super excited when one of the world’s top luxury shoe makers, Aruna Seth (and Aruna herself!) came to Hong Kong for their trunk show.
Celebrities like Pippa Middleton, Blake Lively and Kate Hudson have long been sporting these conservative yet elegantly feminine and glamorous shoes on the red carpets – and now we can too in Hong Kong!
All made in Venice, Aruna Seth shoes are fashioned from gorgeous Italian leathers, suede, python, satins and Chantilly lace with Swarovski crystal embellishments, and are available in a range of colours, perfect for any occasion and to match any outfit. With the plush leather cushioning in each pair of shoes, your feet will feel like they’re walking on cashmere; you’ll be walking down that aisle in the most graceful way possible and most importantly, be able to dance the night away in absolute comfort. Trust me, I tried a few different pairs on and oh my, were they comfy!
Aruna Seth’s gorgeous signature diamante butterfly features on many of her shoe designs, making them particularly pretty and recognisable. I fell especially in love with Aruna Seth’s gorgeous collection of ballerina flats; they’d be a definite must for brides who want that extra bit of comfort towards the end of the night but also want that little bit of sparkle on their feet.
Aruna Seth shoes are also customisable, so if you don’t see something that fits the bill exactly, Aruna will work closely with you to get it right.
Of course, these glam designs would also be perfect for any swanky evening parties or black-tie functions – but given the price tag, you may want to keep these for very special occasions… and what gets more special than the big day itself, right?!
Aruna Seth’s shoes are now available in Hong Kong for purchase at SWANK, as well as on preview for pre-order and customisation at Hitched Bridal, so you can check them out for yourselves!
