I recently posted that Stuart Weitzman had teamed up with select celebrities south of the border, including Olivia Palermo, to create the Young Hollywood Cares Collection. Now, he’s bringing his charitable initiatives in support of ovarian cancer research to Canada.
This month, Stuart Weitzman will be auctioning off 9 one-of-a-kind designs created by a group of Canadian celebrities, each of whom personally decorated a pair of the brand’s ‘Fever’ pump. These celebrities include Fashion Television‘s Jeanne Beker, LOULOU Magazine‘s style editor Claude Laframboise, actresses Rachelle Lefevre, Chantal Lacroix and Emily VanCamp, Olympic athlete Ashleigh McIvor, and ET Canada‘s Rick Campanelli, Cheryl Hickey and Roz Weston.
I recently attended the launch of the auction, and was incredibly impressed by the level of creativity each celebrity brought to his/her shoe. Jeanne Beker and her daughter Joey O’Neil were inspired by a nursery rhyme; Claude Laframboise drew on Truman Capote’s legendary Black and White Ball; and Ashleigh McIvor designed a fierce yet feminine shoe that represents her gold medal success in ski cross. Each shoe was hand-decorated by the celebrities themselves, and done beautifully too, I might add. In fact, I’ve been daydreaming about how my own imaginary design would look. Next DIY project, perhaps?
Stuart Weitzman’s First Annual Canadian Celebrity Shoe Auction is being held online from now until September 21st, here. Bid on a stunning, one-of-a-kind pair of shoes for a very worthy cause! It’s a win-win situation, really.
