You can purchase the shoes from my store as they look on the listing,just adding your shoes size on notes to seller .
Some colors on the designs can be changed without altering price, for all matters please send me a conversation before purchasing.
If the shoes you like need changes concerning design or custom orders,they are all welcome but prices may vary. I have about 500 shoe styles ready to be customized and more than 100 colors for background/dye.I work with the 2 best Bridal shoe manufacturers on the U.S.

Or you can send me your own shoes if you rather have a pair that you tried and loved and I will work on them.In that case,I will have a couple of requests: shoes need to be brand new and if they need to be dyed you should get them dyed in store…

I can't take orders to dye shoes with shoes that are not provided by my manufacturers.

The cost of the shoes appears on every listing covering everything from shoes,to dye,design and painting. Prices vary,please send me a conversation.
Turn around time is about 25-30 days. If they are ready before that time I will ship them earlier.

My Story:
¨¨°º©©º°¨¨¨¨¨¨°º©©º°¨¨¨¨¨¨°º©©º°¨¨¨¨¨¨°º©©º°¨¨¨¨¨¨°º©©º°¨¨¨¨¨¨°º©©º°¨¨¨¨¨¨°º©©º°¨¨¨¨¨¨°º©©º°¨¨
I'm a fashion designer born in South America.Painting and designing is a true passion for me. I owe this to my Father, whose love for life,art and the needed inspired much of what I am today as an artist,person and believer.
In my designs I try to display awesome moments in life, colorful places, creatures and most of all things that inspire me to live and let live a better life. I started painting on jeans for a Fashion Designer in 2001 at request with pictures remembering the Twin Towers and the World Trade Center and all who died and gave their lives there. It was a very ambiguous moment.I worked in many artistic mediums and designed her collection for the Montreal Runway, but none activity have satisfied me more than painting on shoes,fabrics and canvas.I started with different materials but I fell in love with satin,silk,demim and jeans (denim , actually, a very loyal fabric).
With the years my signature element : the Proud Peacock got its own space and place in mostly all my creations. I felt attraction to this bird that when strutting and opening its wings, shows royalty in every feather and now you can see it in probably everyone of my creations and designs.
Every time I travel to exotic places I try to find those cities and towns where they live to take pictures and observe them.
My work is defined by color,shine,glitters and fashion styles. I am constantly inspired by the graphic elements in nature and icons in every new design.
On 2009 I started a new line of hand painted shoes and it has been a complete success. I found this creations to be loved by brides and peacock themed weddings and it is my honor and pleasure to leave a piece of me in everyone of this events and it is an honor to participate in some way in one of the most important days of the woman life.
