I love this little video snippet from Bravo because it shows Rachel going up the stairs to Brian's studio (I have walked up those stairs out of breath too!) and the end results of the beautiful boots that they designed together.
When Trocadero first opened in 2007 we carried Brian Atwood shoes. It was never a doubt in my mind they would be on my shelves. Unfortunately, it was at a time that his name wasn't known enough around here that people would buy the shoes. I sold many pairs on sale and some at such reduced prices it almost made me cry! Luckily for the owners, they now have shoes that will last them a lifetime. (Side note: one of my interns happened to find a pair of his shoes at a Goodwill out in west Omaha and they were priced at $3.99!!! Can you believe it? Seriously, people!) I would LOVE to be able to stock Brian's shoes again but I just don't think the audience is here locally. Reasons why I would love to take my store online...
Here is a picture of me and Brian back in 2003 during one of his viewings of his resort collection. We're outside on a rooftop of a hotel in midtown. We pretended we were in the jungle looking for shoes!
Congrats to Brian for getting the recognition he deserves. And congrats to RZ for becoming a Mommy too! Looks like Uncle Brian's got his hands full of new babies!!
