CINDERELLA's Glass Slipper Designer, Stuart Weitzman, Launches Musical Inspired Shoe Collection
Stuart Weitzman has been named the official designer of the glass slipper being worn in the first-ever Broadway production of Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella. His one-of-a-kind creation makes its debut in the musical set for an official opening on March 3 at the Broadway Theatre.
Weitzman has also announced the launch of his "Clearly Timeless" capsule collection inspired by the musical.
Stuart Weitzman has been creating footwear for over 26 years. Cinderella star Laura Osnes wears transparent vinyl silhouette encrusted with more than five thousand iridescent Swarovski crystals. The glass slippers are the ideal accessory for the Cinderella costumes designed by the renowned, five-time Tony Award-winning designer William Ivey Long.
"What is every girl's first memory of shoes? Cinderella's glass slipper. Something as simple and accessible as a beautiful shoe can make a woman feel like a princess," says Weitzman. "Who wouldn't want to be Cinderella for a night? When asked to re-create the iconic slipper for the new Broadway production, I jumped at the chance."
Weitzman's "Clearly Timeless" capsule collection will feature a glass-slipper-inspired pump, a peep-toe slingback and a strappy sandal. The vinyl silhouettes and Lucite heels -- all bedecked with Swarovski crystals -- will be sold in Stuart Weitzman boutiques in New York City and at www.stuartweitzman.com.
