The American shoe designer Diana Broussard is set to launch her first solo collection in New York in July this year. Speaking to the Fashion Wire Daily, Broussard said: "I wanted to get away from the stiletto which is everywhere, to something more crafted and organic, but still sexy. The collection is very sophisticated. I'm using nude and subtle-coloured suedes, metallic and burnished leathers, and detailing such as vintage decorative tassels".
