You’ve grown up with fashion, who are your stylish icons?
My introduction to fashion, of course, came from Mom (Mimi Bowen, owner of Mimi, pictured here standing) … she has an incredible eye and is always put together. Someone told her once she was the first with the worst, but that’s a part of being a style icon, taking the risk. I love that she’s always on the cutting edge and willing to give it a try!

Why shoes?
Shoes are the emotional buy. A shoe either fits or it doesn’t, nothing in between.

Favorite shoe designers?
Manolo Blahnik will forever be my first and true love. Mom bought me my first pair in New York City at Jeffrey when I was 14.

Current trends?
Smoking slippers à la Stubbs & Wootton and booties! High-top tennis shoes and the classic Manolo Blahnik “BB.”

How many shoes do you think one should own?
Ballet flats, sandals, high-heeled pumps, flat boots and a fabulous pair of high-heeled boots such as the Jimmy Choo “Grand.”

Tell us a trade secret … Dr. Scholl’s gel inserts for every shoe and boot!

How would you describe the style of New Orleans women?
New Orleans women express their own brand of chic ... American beauty with European refinement.

How do you know what to buy for them
Since our local women have an original style, I endeavor to bring the familiar as well as a more fashion forward product to them.  

What advice would you give to women when choosing a shoe?
Cinderella said, “A single shoe can change your life!” Go for it. Have fun.
