Alot of people ask me about those John Fluevog platform shoes ,lately,I still wear them, but what they don’t know is that before I started writing music and lyrics I was a shoe designer, textile printer, and costume designer. When Pat Field laughed me out of her store when I presented her with my collection named “Slick slacks for sluts ” in 1986 , she added…”the 70’s will never be in fashion again”. ha ha ha ha ! I can laugh now but at the time I was DIVAstated … but I took the rejection to a new direction and really took my songwriting hobby seriously from that point on, in part to show off the clothes designs and also because it was a much deeper challenge . Here is a photo that managed to survive the great house fire of 1994 of the shoes I used to design circa 1986. Life is funny….and so are these shoes from the “slick slacks for sluts ” collection. - Lady Kier
each shoe was glittered and sparklig and one of a kind! and now on with the shoe….
