When Fashion is in Your Blood

The well-crafted shoe is my passion and Tania Spinelli sure knows her stuff.
Tania's father is a tailor and her mother a seamstress, she also married into a third-generation family of Italian cobblers so, I think we can safely say that Spinelli has fashion in her blood! She worked in the fashion industry for several years quickly becoming design director of Hilfiger Collection but the pull of shoe design was too great and she eventually returned to her greatest love. Today Tania lives in New York and travels frequently to Venice where her shoe line is made. Spinelli's shoes have been featured in countless magazines and is a favourite of Hollywood stars, including the stars of Gossip Girl. Her shoes have frequently been used on stars Blake Lively and Taylor Momsen.

Here are some of the designs from her A/W 11 collection, I am particularly in love with the burgundy bow-tie-back boots and the calf hair, gold-tipped pumps! Let me know which one's you can't wait to add to your wardrobe!
