How did you go about choosing the shoes that were commissioned for the book? We had about 1000 shoes in the collection but we bought many more - some I commissioned, some I found from the artists. Sometimes I just liked the artist’s work and I got some great shoes that way. These are what we thought were the best ones. When we started doing this, I sold the shoes. The window was like an art gallery. I had no idea that we would open more stores or that I would do a book someday. I was just happy to get the money for the next window!
