Brian Atwood is a former model turned shoe designer. He designed shoes for Versace for five years before starting his own brand in 2001. He quickly gained success, and patronage from the stars including famous names like Nicole Kidman and Natalie Portman. Brian Atwood's shoes are incredibly sexy, and in 2003 he was awarded the Swarovski Perry Ellis award for Accessory Design by the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America). Brian's shoe designs have clearly been influenced by his experience as a model. The curve of the heels, the glorious textures, the exquisite styling and the impossibly high heels make his designs, in my view, fall into the category of "taxi shoes". That is, you only go out in them if you are being transported to and from the venue in a taxi. However, if you hold your head high and strut your stuff along the red carpet and you will look magnificent in these beauties.
Statement Brian Atwood details include concealed platform soles and spiky heels to make your legs look as though they go on forever, yet the platform sole keeps the shoes wearable. Thus they have become very popular with celebrities including Rachel Bilson, Selena Gomez, Freida Pinto, Eva Longoria and many more.
