THE creations of Salvatore Ferragamo and Terry de Havilland will hit the stage in Sadler’s Wells’ forthcoming production of Shoes this September.

“We were approached by Suzanne Walker, the producer of Shoes, who came down to the studio with Richard Thomas, the composer, and Laura Hopkins, the costume designer. It was meant to be just an informal chat about shoes in general but as the meeting progressed a buzz began to happen,” de Havilland tells us. “When I heard about the number Your Mums Shoes, and the fact that the director Stephen Mear wanted to make this a Seventies-inspired piece, and have the performers tap dance in platforms, I jumped at the chance to provide the footwear.”

What was de Havilland’s key inspiration?

“For this, my inspiration came from past experience,” he says. “I love making shoes for performers. I cut my teeth on Tim Curry for the Rocky Horror Show. I’ve been addicted ever since.”

Italian label Salvatore Ferragamo will have a song and dance act named and devoted to it too. Six female dancers will wear shoes from the Creations collection – replicas of the original designs made for iconic women over the past decades including Marilyn Monroe, Carmen Miranda and Judy Garland.

Created by composer and writer Richard Thomas, who also created Jerry Springer: The Opera, Shoes is a dance show exploring the highs and lows of footwear from Christian Louboutin to Crocs.

The production will begin on September 3. To buy tickets click HERE.
