We are currently seeing a global movement towards more elaborate, more defying, more eye-popping, more statement shoes - nevermind if the ankles hurt. These are the types that give fashion whores an instant shoegasm, and when you wear them, you're extra confident because for sure, there will be jealous eyes also wanting your gorgeous pair. And you just love the attention, don't you?
So while women find solace in owning a pair of lovely shoes, they'll even find more joy when they see GOLD DOT's latest haute shoe collection. A brainchild of Ally Duazo, GOLD DOT was founded in July of 2010 and is being run and operated by Fashion Instinct Retailers Co. GOLD DOT is a local brand that houses the trendiest and very forward statement footwear, as well as bags and jewelry. Their creations also come in very limited quantities. All pieces are proudly Philippine made, except for the jewelry.
From booties, wedges, maryjanes and slingbacks, GOLD DOT goes architectural but edgy with sculpted or structured chunky wooden heels in a collection that marks their first anniversary in the industry.
