A few lucky footwear designers recently got to see their Cinderella-dreams come true when they won the Glass Slipper Awards at FN Platform in Las Vegas. Those present at the show got to create booths that showcased their latest footwear designs, with the winners being chosen by UBM Fashion Group, Head of Footwear, Leslie Gallin.
The winner for Most Innovative Booth Interior went to Hunter, with Tidal coming in as the runner up. Best New Exhibitor Booth went to Katy Perry (yes, that Katy Perry), and Backyard Footwear took the runner up position. The final award for Most Creative Use of Exhibit Space was SAS, with Creative Recreation earning the runner up spot. — MERIAL WILES
