No Love For Biviano as Mary Kyri Takes Over

Strangely when Australia’s Next Top Model did their annual shoe episoe I saw one big hole filled with another. Terry Biviano, Australia’s self proclaimed version of Manolo Blahnik and Sydney shoe queen was replaced by another Italian Australian footwear designer wanting to claim the title of Australia’s top cobbler.

Mary Kyri is from South Australia and is loved by celebrities including Kylie and the Kardishan’s. As well appearing on ANTM she supplied the shoes for the Runway to LA photocall, not to menting providing her designs for last year’s Sass and Bide Melbourne fashion show. I can’t find an image for me to post on this site however compaired to another designer that really needs to step up her game, Mary Kyri has a web site where you can view her range. I wouldn’t put her on the same level as a manolo, not even a louboutin but at least her shoes don’t look like the heels might snap off.

As for other up and coming shoe designers I can not wait for the Charlotte Olympia site to be finished, designed by Charlotte Dellal, daughter of eighties model Andrea Dellal. I’ve seen a couple of shots of her designs but I really want to see a full range.

Happy Shoe Hunting
