Stills from the film The Wizard of Oz. Sketches of the ruby slippers from left to right: Jimmy Choo, Betsey Johnson, Moschino, L.A.M.B. by Gwen Stefani and Sergio Rossi.
Next year is the 70th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz, and to commemorate the anniversary Warner Brothers Consumer Products has enlisted Swarovski and 19 designers to design their take on Dorothy’s ruby slippers. The designers include A. Testoni, Abaeté, Alberta Ferretti, Betsey Johnson, Botkier, Christian Louboutin, Diane von Furstenberg, Giuseppe Zanotti, Jimmy Choo, L.A.M.B. by Gwen Stefani, Lisa Pliner, Manolo Blahnik, Moschino, Oscar de la Renta, Roger Vivier, Sergio Rossi, Stuart Weitzman, Tibi and Tuleh. All of the designs will include Swarovski crystals and will be unveiled September 4th in the windows of Saks Fifth Avenue. The shoes will take a tour and make several stops including Art Basel in Miami. The ruby slippers will be auctioned off and the proceeds will benefit the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. The Wizard of Oz is one of my favorite movies and I cannot wait to see this collection! I hope they make their way to San Francisco!
