McQueen Tribute Heels for Charity

A glance at the above feathered, brocade-heeled shoes and the late Alexander McQueen quickly comes to mind. These shoes, however, were not designed by McQueen, but rather in tribute of him. Etsy seller a la femme created this elaborate pair of heels in honor of the British designer who took his own life in February 2010.

“As a tribute I’d decided to donate money to his foundation, but after searching and searching I surprisingly found that there isn’t one. So I decided to do something myself and create shoes as a personal memorial to him. I am also hoping that my efforts will convince someone to begin a foundation in his honor so that a portion of my proceeds can go towards it.”

The seller also says that the shoes, which are one-of-a-kind, were inspired by the deceased designer’s final collection for Fall 2010. The final look from the immaculate but somber show is below. Not too shabby, a la femme! The shoes are currently selling for $650. Find out more here.
