Stuart Weitzman's Shoe Shopping Adventure Avec Petra Nemcova
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…to start buying holiday gifts! Last night Stuart Weitzman threw a shopping fête with Petra Nemcova at their chic Fifth Ave. location. Sandwiches in the shape of stilettos cured hunger pangs, while glasses of wine were dispersed to further the holiday cheer. Between slipping on suede booties and giving the leather handbags a spin, shoppers perused Nemcova’s candle collection, Be The Light New York by Petra Nemcova. Of all the shoe shopping that occurred last night, 20 percent of all profits were donated to Nemcova’s Happy Hearts Fund, a non-profit dedicated to rebuilding schools in areas afflicted by natural disasters. Aside from Stuart Weitzman, where is Nemcova’s favorite far-flung locale to stock up on presents? “I always find great gifts in Haiti,” she explained, “like unique wooden crafts.” Finally, a gift that isn’t easily replicated!
