Floral Fever
Vince Camuto will be on hand at Macy’s annual Flower Show (which is going on now through April 11). The designer will be on-hand at the Herald Square location in New York City on Saturday to help showcase some of his most popular new designs of the season — some of which will be displayed in birdcages as part of the arrangement for the day. This year’s show, themed “Spring is in the Air,” is held in the New York store as well as additional flagship locations. Each year, Macy’s lines the floors with a variety of 35,000 flowers, plants and trees to create an indoor garden. Camuto will also sign shoes at the day’s event.

Designer Showcase
Havaianas will roll out six new flip-flop designs just in time for the summer sun. The company is partnering with Threadless.com for the “Threadless Loves Havaianas” design challenge, which gives the online community a chance to transform their creative drawings into sandals. The contest, which ends Sunday, has already selected four designs from original artwork from the Threadless.com archives. The two remaining winners will be announced later this month. All the winning designs will be released in July. The limited-edition sandals will retail exclusively at Havaianasus.com for $28. Threadless will also sell T-shirts for $18 to $20 featuring the winning artwork.
