FINALLY, A PARTY FOR SHOE LOVERS! You now have a good reason to where your fabulous shoes!
**POST COVERAGE OF THE PARTY INCLUDING VIDEO FOOTAGE & PICTURES CAN NOW BE SEEN HERE. Thanks for coming out :)***
The season of corporate parties and Christmas festivities officially starts one week after Thanksgiving in the US. So we figured why not start the holiday season with a full blow out party for our shoe loving members. Shoeholics Magazine will celebrate one year anniversary on Thursday, November 29, 2012 at Pranna Lounge on 28th street and Madison Avenue in New York City starting at 8pm until 2am. YES, IT’S FREE, NO COVER CHARGE!!! Save the date and RSVP at EVENTS@SHOEHOLICSMAG.COM. See full details at the end of this post.
The night will also double as the inaugural launch of the Myrtle Awards™, awards to recognize amazing talents in shoe art craftsmanship no matter what form of medium used (i.e. leather, paper, flour, wood, paintings, illustrations, e.t.c). Many more categories, especially traditional shoe designers will soon follow in the following years.
ABOUT SOME OF THE EVENT’S PROUD SPONSORS: The event will be hosted by our very own Shoeholics Magazine cover model (on the holiday issue in stores now), TV & Radio personality, Sierra Scott, a proud owner of over 300 pairs of shoes! Some lucky Shoeholics Club members (sign up for free on this site) will be presented with gift bags containing amazing products provided by some of our proud sponsors which includes Slingbackers, Travalo, Moksha, Pedicouture, Lady’s Secret, Tite-Grip and to be treated to delicious shoe themed desserts of cupcakes and cakes by Kenneth Clarke for Sukari Treats. Some lucky members will also walk away with raffled designer shoes and bags from Finland’s mega successful shoe brand Minna Parikka, Italian designers Massimo Dogana, Casadei, Giuseppe Zanotti, and Greece based designer Dukas.
Kenneth Clarke and Massimo Dogana will help select the ultimate winner of the Myrtle Awards™ Shoe Cake of the Year to be announced at the bash! And of course we would like to thank Pranna Lounge’s proprietress Payal Sharma for providing such a lovely venue (Pranna Lounge) for our very first bash to take place. The space will be decorated by Yeye Osofisan of The UpperRoom Events party planners. You can expect entertainments and exciting moments at the event. One thing is for sure, the lovely Belly Dancer Venus will entertain at the party. Don’t miss it!
Slingbackers, a proud member and a generous gold sponsor of the event: We have all been in a state of distress struggling to remove the hem of our pants from our shoes at one point in time. Well, Slingbackers came up with a unique concept with a revolutionary, patent pending footwear accessory that provides the solution and barrier to the dreaded “heel wedge” problem. Fashionistas everywhere, can now wear their favorite sexy slingback shoes with confidence and have picture perfect looking jeans, pants, gowns and dresses…every time! You never have to catch your clothes between your heels and your slingback shoes again! Some of our members in attendance at the party will get to take home a sample in their gift bags!
