Cesare Casadei Reveals Favorite Custom Shoes for Rita Ora

Cesare Casadei has celebrity relationships that are bound to impress. When asked about the best custom shoes he has created, two names came to mind: Rita Ora and Beyoncé.

Here, the designer shares more details about those special projects:

“I love making custom shoes for amazing celebrities. I made shoes for Rita Ora’s 2014 Met Gala look and for Beyoncé’s music video to announce her Mrs. Carter Tour. With customization projects, we typically have tight deadlines, so we worked hard, and energy was running high in the studio to make the perfect shoes for both women. It’s exciting to make a shoe for a single individual because you can add personal touches. When both singers debuted the final products, I was extremely proud of the results.”
