“Hi! I’m not here right now, but my shoes are, so leave them a message” …a Carrie Bradshaw quote that’s absolutely necessary after being invited to the SJP Collection Showroom! I had the opportunity to sit with Sarah Jessica Parker’s team viewing all of her chic and trendy shoes ranging from navy velvet flats to hot pink heels. I also got to learn a fun fact about the SJP Collection: the story behind the ribbon. Every shoe from the SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker Collection will always feature a ribbon, mainly up the back of the shoe or hidden on the side of the shoe. It was inspired by SJP’s mother who always had her and her sisters wear two grosgrain ribbons in their hair. These ribbons have become SJP’s cute and personal signature touch on her collection.
Carrie Bradshaw was my fashion idol, owning the city in her tutu and Manolo Blahniks. She is also the ultimate reason I chose to pursue a degree in fashion and packed up all of my things to move to NYC. I spent most days in college watching Sex and The City while attempting to do textile or product line homework so being able to visit Sarah Jessica Parker’s Showroom to view her stunning shoe collection was definitely the most exciting and unforgettable experience I’ve had since moving to NYC. Maybe next time she’ll surprise us at the showroom (a fashionista can dream, right)! Check out the SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker Collection at Nordstroms, Bloomingdales, and Zappos (She even has a shoe featuring her character Carrie Bradshaw)!
