Nestled away in the lanes of Melbourne's QV shopping centre is the local designer boutique Belmore Bootmakers who produce locally manufactured leather shoes in a warehouse in Sydney. As part of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival cultural program, they've teamed up with another local designer Kara Liu to produce some gorgeous leather loafers. I went along to the launch party the other night with my blogger friend Vulette (Young Red Violets) and her photographer (aka boyfriend) to have a sticky at the new range. My favourite were these baby pink leather loafers that I think would look amazing with spotty socks. I have a bit of an obsession with socks at the moment.
As well as the shoes, Kara Liu has her own collection which is beautiful. I am absolutely in love with this jacket although it's a bit out of my price range :'(
Thanks to Belmore Bootmakers, Kara Liu and Khoa Nguyen of Yves Manzine for the invite!
