I met John Ashford and his lovely shoes one night at Charleston Fashion Week. He came all the way down south, by way of NYC, because he had designed some shoes for Emerging Designer La’Dasha Powell. Everyone wanted to look at the shoes that his model Nofar was wearing. They are called “Moon Walker” and she most definitely was walking her way to the moon in those. They were sooo tall!
The shoes above are my favorite and I saw La’Dasha Powell wearing them the night she presented her collection. They are called “For South Africa” and costs $600. He is one of a kind shoe designer that I hope we continue to see. Be sure to check out his website and the picture below of the designer himself. Photos from John Ashford.
