$82k pumps dazzle Dubai

A dazzling collection of handmade gold embossed women's shoes with diamond-encrusted heels is drawing crowds at Leatherworld Middle East 2017 in Dubai.

The collection is from Italian designer Antonio Vietri, who had caught the imagination of the world of leather aficianados last year with his unique golden loafers.

The shoes cost anything between $32,670 and $82,000.

The collection also features silk pumps embossed with gold or silver and buyers can customise them with pearls, Swarovski crystals, or diamonds, according to their preference.

“I’m delighted to officially unveil my women’s collection at Leatherworld Middle East 2017, following the resounding success of the global launch of my men’s collection at the show last year,” said Vietri. “Gulf consumers love exclusivity and luxury that’s entirely unique, and I’m excited to present customers and retailers something completely different from anything they’ve seen before.”

Antonio Vietri is one of more than 50 exhibitors from 16 countries at Leatherworld Middle East 2017, which opened on April 30 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. 

The annual three-day event, which closes today, also features a Trend Area, an exclusive showcase of exotic leather innovations seen for the first time; and Fashion Avenue, where talented designers from Esmod Dubai are showcasing their flair with an inspiring array of leather garments, bags, and shoes.

Other features include Leather Production for tanneries and dealers of semi-finished and finished animal hides; and the Shoe Box, a dedicated section for mid to high-end leather footwear.
