Name to know: Behnaz Kanani

01 June 2009


We're so excited about Behnaz Kanani's new S/S collection we had to spill the beans. Because, having worked at a host of luxury fashion houses including Jimmy Choo, Behnaz Kanani launched her own shoe collection in September 2006 at Milan Fashion Week. And it just keeps getting more and more gorgeous. The latest collection of colourful sculptural heels entitled ‘Whispers of Love' 'reminds me of avant-garde inspiration, a message to sophisticated contemporary women who travel the world, relish individuality and are marked by a distinctive personal expression' says the designer, and rather sexy they are too!

But it's not all glitz and glamour for the new queen of shoes: 'to say I live, breathe, sleep and eat the collection is an understatement'. But when Behnaz sees women wearing her shoes it's all worth it. And what does she make of her label's A-list following? (Jennifer Aniston, Mischa Barton and Lily Cole have all been snapped wearing the S/S collection in the last month!) 'I feel a great sense of pride. I look forward to great developments in the future and to see many more celebrities feeling the joy and allure of wearing a Behnaz Kanani shoe!' Behnaz also revealed she is designing for 'a woman with a strong sense of her own style with an appreciation for luxury and a desire for exclusivity'. Well a-men to that!
