~Top Designers Re-Invent Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers~


Louboutin, Blahnik and Choo Among the Chosen Few




“If Dorothy were living in the 21st century, what would she wear?” is the question posed by The Wizard of Oz Ruby Slipper Collection. To commemorate the film’s 70th Anniversary, Warner Bros and Swarovski have commissioned a creative re-interpretation the film’s most iconic and revered symbol: Dorothy’s Magical Ruby Slippers.

Contemporary works of art from the likes of fashion masterminds A. Testoni, Abaete, Alberta Ferretti, Betsey Johnson, Botkier, Christian Louboutin, Diane von Furstenberg, Giuseppe Zanotti, Jimmy Choo, L.A.M.B. by Gwen Stefani, Lisa Pliner, Manolo Blahnik, Moschino, Oscar de la Renta, Roger Vivier, Sergio Rossi, Stuart Weitzman, Tibi, and Tuleh will compose The Wizard of Oz Ruby Slipper Collection.

In honor of this classic, 19 iconic designers will reinterpret the ruby slippers we’ve all fantasized about since childhood. While you may not admit it, we know you’ve clicked your heels together in the privacy of your own closet.

Here are some preliminary sketches by Gwen Stefani, Sergio Rossi and Moschino:





And…love this…Betsey Johnson!





Naturally, the magical slippers will travel the country (with three clicks and a few carefully chosen words) before being auctioned off, with all proceeds going to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.
