The New Shoe Designer We’re Completely Obsessed With

If you’ve been keeping up with the Fall 2015 shows, you already know that It-bag designer Paula Cademartori debuted a new collection of footwear during Milan Fashion Week to rave reviews. Her vibrant offering of standout styles were so next level, we felt it was necessary to ask the designer a few burning questions about the launch—and her footwear M.O. in general—before the shoes hit stores this fall.

What Inspired The Big Launch

"It was a natural evolution of the brand, both in terms of style and the needs of the business. In 2009, I worked on a project wholly dedicated to footwear for the Vogue Talents competition and loved it. I've had a lifelong passion for shoes."

Her Pro Styling Tip

"The best pant length for heels all depends on the person's body type and personal style. I love cropped trousers. They look super sexy paired with high heels."

What The Future Holds

"My Fall 2015 collection features six new styles and I intend to introduce even more in seasons to come. Who knows—maybe even sneakers!"

A Trick For Walking In Her Heels

"Be conscious of the rest of your body—head up, shoulders back and chest out. Don’t think too hard about every step you take. Instead, imagine that you're walking to a beat and the path you're taking will lead to something wonderful. And lastly, don't forget to smile—confidence is key."

The Color Trend To Try Now

"I love a nude palette with pops of bright, contrasting colors. I find it really elegant and feminine."
