If the Shoe fits

Alesha Dixon brought Henry Street to a halt as she arrived at Arnotts to launch the amazing new Shoe Garden at the store.  Wearing a green M Missoni dress and gold Buffalo heels she was met by Arnotts CEO Nigel Blow and Chairman Mark Schwartz. She greeted fans for an hour on the night before taking part in a live interview with IMAGE Magazine editor Melanie Morris.

A choreographed shoe fashion show on a grass carpet wowed all those in attendance with songs from Run DMC ‘Walk this Way’, Alesha Dixon’s ‘The Boy Does Nothing’ and ‘These Boots Were Made for Walking’ from Nancy Sinatra.

Guests enjoyed shoe shaped cookies and shoe themed cupcakes from the Clodagh McKenna Restaurants at Arnotts and bespoke cocktails from 37 Dawson Street. Among those in attendance were Lorraine Keane, Lisa Fitzpatrick, Clodagh McKenna, Karen Koster, Anna Daly, Debbie O’Donnell, Brendan Courtney, Bairbre Power, Virginia Macari and Roz Flanagan.

With 47 brands housed in a space of 10,000sqft the Shoe Garden opening caused a stampede by shoe loving girls!
