A couple of days ago I got the chance to meet the international luxury shoe designer Rupert Sanderson at Rubaiyat department store in Stars Avenue. I was really sick that day and the weather was horrible but I insisted and rushed to meet him. A person who is addicted to shoes will never miss a chance to meet one the most talented shoe designers.
We had a quick chat in his shoe section at the store and I got the chance to ask him a few questions that were popping in my head from the night before. Rupert is happily married to a tall Italian lady who is a literature lover and that made me wonder who was more obsessed with shoes, him? or her? So I asked and he said “I’m not obsessed with shoes, I’m obsessed with the craft of making shoes. I’m passionate about creating them” I asked what about your wife? he smiled and said “She just browses the website and picks the pairs she likes and asks “Could you please get these home tomorrow?”. That lady is very lucky for getting all the shoes she wants haha.
Thanks to Rubaiyat, I was more than happy to meet Rupert. Not only is he talented but he’s a lovely gentleman too. Here are some photos of my favorite pairs from the AW2015 collection.
These were exclusively designed for Rubaiyat and they will not be available anywhere else in the world That was my favorite pair and I really wanted to get my hands on it but I couldnt find my size.I’m obsessed with heels but flats don’t harm, as long as they’re unique like this pair.
To the event I wore this beautiful abaya by Ta Marbota. It’s now on sale for a limited time only!
