Did you know that the tradition of a bride having something old, new, borrowed and blue on her wedding day comes from the rhyme which ends with the line 'and a silver sixpence in her shoe.’ No? Well, it’s a good job footwear designer Georgina Goodman does, because she has been commissioned, in association with the Royal Mint (www.royalmint.com), to design a pair of amazing wedding shoes complete with a lucky silver sixpence - and we have three pairs available for you to WIN!
The Royal Mint is planning to send a pair of the gorgeous lace shoes to Buckingham Palace for the wedding, in the hope that Kate Middleton will chose them for her trip down the aisle in two weeks time. Valued at between £800 - £1000, and not available in the shops, there are an extremely limited number of the shoes being produced making this one very special prize indeed.
Grazia Daily caught up with Georgina for a chat and she was full of praise for Kate, describing her as ‘a great role model – she’s not a fashion victim, she’s very elegant and beautiful and wears clothes really well… She’s an amazing person to have as a British style icon.’
When we asked her (obviously) about The Dress, Georgina said she reckons Kate will ‘surprise us all – it won’t be as simple as we think. I think it might be very old school couture’. Ooooh… That WOULD be exciting.
To get your mitts on a pair of the bespoke shoes, which will be created to fit the winner’s feet (eep!) all you need to do is answer the simple question below...
