First look: Disney's Cinderella gets some fancy designer slippers – coming to Dubai soon

If the glass shoe fits...


Ahead of it’s March premiere, iconic shoe designers from around the world are feeling like Cinderella’s fairy godmother and releasing their very own version of the Disney princess’ glass slipper – this time fit for the modern-day woman…

Using materials from Perspex to Swarovski, the delicate glass slippers, first seen in Disney's 1950 Cinderella film, have now been reimagined in a variety of new ways thanks to designers Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia, Salvatore Ferragamo, Jerome Rousseau, Stuart Weitzman, Jimmy Choo, Paul Andrew, Alexandre Birman, and Rene Caovilla.

"Cinderella has both delicate and strong qualities as a character," Nicholas Kirkwood noted. "The moment of transformation emphasises both and gave me the design inspiration to create a piece that spoke to the film's magic."

The whimsical new shoes will soon be available to order from major retail stores across the world, including Harrods, Saks Fifth Avenue in New York and Beverly Hills, Galeries Lafayette in Paris, Excelsior Milano, Tsum in Moscow, Isetan in Tokyo, and Dubai's Level Shoe District – with the sparkly slippers set to be unveiled right before Valentine's Day.
