In Manila’s high society, Puey Quinones is known as a master couturier, producing fashion pieces that are beyond imagination. And after making bridal dreams come true with her Coco Melody workshop in Los Angeles and bringing her to Manila in 2019, and making protective gear for frontline doctors at the height of the pandemic, as well as a elegant for fashion scientists with his “Fashion for Protection”, the fashion designer born in Samar adds the title of shoe designer to his repertoire.
Puey is collaborating with Los Angeles-based shoe brand Lenny Lu to present a must-have Fall / Winter 2021 court shoe with the ‘The Sexiest Heels’ collection. Launched on September 23, 2021, the collection, with its play on softness and elegance, delicacy and daring, invites every woman to give up quarantine flats for a while and rediscover the magic of heels.
One of her flagship pieces is a pair of gold and red pointy toe shoes, with a name that will make you think of the ultimate blonde bombshell, Marilyn. Playful is the Liza with its metallic ornaments and feathers. The Cocoon and Pia mules present an elegant and artistic vibe. Whereas Lauren heels and Roz mesh boots are definitely pieces that look like me with their rows of knots.
“I am more than excited and happy to share this dream with you,” said Puey. “I still remember when I was a kid and had to beg my parents to buy me shoes, but unfortunately we couldn’t afford it. I have to borrow or wait for my relatives to give me shoes. And here I am, drawing shoes. I can finally tell my mom not to worry about her shoes because I can make one in any color and design. I am very grateful for this opportunity.
