Bel Ami

**This is an example of some of the work I was involved with when I worked for a company called Theatrical Shoemakers. We made costume shoes for film, theatre, television etc**

Bel Ami, with costume design by Odile Dicks-Mireaux, is released in UK cinemas today. If you see it, keep an eye on Uma Thurman's feet and see if you can catch a glimpse of these beauties...

Beaded and embroidered gold brocade mules for Uma Thurman.

Leather lining, brocade sock, bound topline, bound insole, brocade covered kitten heels, leather soles.

We were provided with the brocade already beaded and embroidered. We had to ensure that we cut the uppers in such a way that the placement of the embroidered area was exactly the same on each shoe.
