from my Floral series, a range embracing motifs of pastel coloured flower patterns against either a pale creamy or a dark coloured background. Gaelic for ‘rose’ the name reflects the stylised impressed pattern. The shape of the shoes is very Rococo, a style of art and ornament associated with the excesses of French High Society and Louis XV reign. During this time trimmings on clothes and shoes were elaborate and costly using all manner of lace, ribbon and flowers. The shoes have the Louis heel, spayed at the base and waisted and have green mother of pearl bows at the base of high tongues. Beads of platinum interspersed with white edge the gently curving lines of pink braid along the top.
