from my Floral series, a range embracing motifs of pastel coloured flower patterns against either a pale creamy or a dark coloured background. French for ‘little blue flower’ the name reflects the decoration of the 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, splayed at the base and waisted and have large rosettes with platinum beads on the elongated toes. Gently curving lines of blue & platinum braid are topped with platinum and white beads.
