A FASHION FAIRYTALE

Monday, 3 March 2014























I've always considered Cinderella more of a horror story than a fairytale. Firstly, the protagonist leaves the hottest party of the year before midnight, she flagrantly breaks the rules when it comes to mixing metallics (if you're up on your Grimms, you'd know her dress is gold and silver), and then, just when you think it can't get any worse, Cindy goes and leaves her bespoke glass shoes (so avant garde, by the way) behind. As an aside, I've also always felt that the ugly sisters were misunderstood and would be sartorially applauded as Man Repellers if they existed in 2014...

A few weeks ago, shoe giant Deichmann challenged bloggers to review Caroline Blomst's SS14 collaboration. I considered this a sign from the fairy shoe godmothers that I rewrite (and draw) the Cinderella story in comic book form, complete with Caroline starring as the insouciantly cool, Marant-wearing fairy godmother, who's sorely missing from the Grimms Bros' books. You may observe the fruits of my labour above.
