The VIPs sitting in the front row at high profile fashion shows draw just as many stares and cameras as the models on the runway. That’s why it’s common for the designer presenting the show to give clothing to the celebs and big wigs occupying front row seats. At Luca Luca’s Fall 2011 presentation at New York Fashion Week those with the best seats in the house kept their footwear simple – perhaps in reflection of the culture of the label. The fare included basic black pumps, pointy taupe slides, and green peep-toe platforms.
