Zendaya designs footwear

Published 23/04/2015


Zendaya is planning to debut her shoe line at this year's Met Gala.

The 18-year-old Disney star came to the fashion world's attention at this year's Oscars, when she stepped out in a silky ivory coloured Vivienne Westwood gown and her hair in dreadlocks. Her hair prompted Fashion Police host Giuliana Rancic to comment she looked as if she smelled like weed or patchouli, causing a furore and resulting in her co-hosts Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin quitting.

However Zendaya's cool style is widely sought after, so she's teaming up with her stylist Law Roach for a footwear collection.

"We plan on doing the best of everything. We're going to create a good sneaker, and we're going to do a cute flat," Zendaya revealed to US InStyle.

"My inspiration is all of the young women out there who are my age and older - working women who don't necessarily want to spend a trillion dollars, but want to get a good shoe. I want to make affordable shoes of quality that are very fashion forward, chic, and that I’m going to wear.”

Zendaya plans to debut the shoes at the Met Gala on May 4; the perfect platform to show off her designs.

All of the creations will represent her street style, with Law revealing only Zendaya approved shoes will make the cut.

"It’s her own brand from start to finish. It’ll only be stuff that we’re proud of and that I would style her in, even if I wasn’t part of the brand," Law said.

“Everybody knows that if you bring a new shoe to an outfit, it kind of recreates it and makes it brand new all over again. We just thought that was the most exciting thing we could do - and with a little piece of her style.”
