Bridal shoes fit for a princess-in-waiting from Hackbridge designer
A Hackbridge-based designer is vying for the right to create Kate Middleton’s Royal wedding shoes.
Aruna Seth, from Purley, has made it down to the last three brands including world-renowned designer Jimmy Choo.
The decision will not be officially made public until the big day on April 29.
The 28-year-old, who has a shop in Hackbridge, believes her ‘Fit for a Princess’ designs could be the perfect choice and a hand-made, bespoke design would be created for Kate Middleton.
Miss Seth said: “We’d love to be picked to be Royal Wedding shoe designer, it would be a truly magical experience.
“Kate Middleton’s bridal shoes should be simple, elegant with a hint of glamour to match her style, with a reasonable heel-height to be in proportion to her petite frame.
“Kate may have a four-minute walk up the carpeted aisle of the 900-year-old church of Westminster Abbey therefore comfort will be key.
“Spending a long-time on her feet, Kate’s bridal shoes will need to be beautiful yet practical; Aruna Seth shoes all contain a special plush padding providing extra comfort for the Royal day.
“I feel the ‘Bryony’ shoe pictured below to be the most ‘Kate Middleton’ appropriate from my collection. We would of course design a bespoke one-off bridal shoe for Kate’s special day if asked.”
Until last week, bookmakers William Hill had made Miss Seth’s designs one of the favourites to get the Royal nod of approval.
Fellow designer Gina was favourite at 3-1 with Miss Seth’s design close behind at 4-1, Jimmy Choo is next at 5-1 with Laboutin also at 5-1.
