Insider got an early look at the new, $7,500 fairy-tale-inspired Q by Pasquale collection, designed, engineered and developed by Pasquale Fabrizio, often referred to as “the shoe cobbler to the stars.” Amazingly, the shoes are made of Murano glass with 24-carat gold beading — the first of their kind, Fabrizio said. “We’re dealing with something that’s very unique here that has never been done before,” he said. “I’ve been working with the prototypes for the past year and half. It’s so exciting to be able to show them.” The official unveiling will take place on Jan. 29 during a champagne reception at Fabrizio’s Los Angeles studio. On display will be five styles from the über-limited, 100-pair collection. No word on celebrities expected for the event, but given Fabrizio’s work with Madonna, Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker, it’s sure to be a star-packed soirée, one literally fit for a princess. And come Oscar night, Fabrizio said he’s hoping to outfit a starlet for her red-carpet walk. “We’re looking for the next Cinderella,” he mused.
