Sarah Jessica Parker is an inspiration to many girls, especially those who spent hours consuming their teenage addiction to Sex and the City. In the series, Carrie is a writer obsessed with shoes. In reality, Sarah Jessica Parker is a business woman who just received the Footwear News Achievement Awards Launch of the Year honor for her first SJP shoe line.
Initially an exclusive for US store Nordstrom, SJP footwear spring line was launched last January and a set of bags for fall has also joined the shoe collection online. The collection is almost exclusively pumps, Carrie’s signature footwear. You can find the occasional boot or ballerina, but stilettos are what this collection is worth checking out for: T-straps, ribbons, leather and suede, these shoes seem to come straight out of a Sex and the City episode.
What we loved the most is the little stunt performed by the actress when she promoted her collection, literally spreading pumps on the Carrie stoop in Manhattan and spreading the news online, which set Twitter on fire. Speak of promotional expertise!
After expanding to Zappos Couture and Neiman Marcus, the actress/business woman is planning more: SJP shoe line Spring 2015 will see the advent of a bridal collection – which I am sure a good percentage of SATC fan brides will put their weddings on hold for.
