This spring, Prada is on a tour across eight luxury markets in the US showing off their new Made to Order Décolleté collection. On April 16th, Prada Chicago hosted a cocktail party for tastemakers to preview the new customizable shoe service. The event not only showed off the new service—women will now be able to select their perfect shoe from fabrics to color, as well as heel height—but proceeds from the event went to a worthy cause benefiting Komera, a not-for-profit that “develops self-confident young women through education, community and sport in rural Rwanda”.
