Georgina Goodman's take on the perfect Royal Wedding footwear, is an antique Welsh lace pump with Scottish seed pearls and pearl-inspired heel: “I wanted to create something special with an intrinsic emotional value; something old and at the same time mirroring Kate’s fresh modernity. ... I have aimed for a balance between history and femininity fitting the occasion; a kind of luxury recycling.”
Manolo Blahnik has a fresh feel to his springtime specialty sketch, of an ivory silk pump with organza lilies of the valley and sea pearls: “It represents springtime and everything fresh and new, which is what Kate Middleton is all about.”
