Chopard, official partner of the Cannes Film Festival and long-time supporter of the AmFAR (Cinema Against AIDS) benefit gala and Giuseppe Zanotti Design are preparing their latest surprise.
This year Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele, Co-President of Chopard, has joined forces with Giuseppe Zanotti to create a unique pair of shoes - a pair of gem-set stilettos that will be auctioned during the AmFAR gala on 19th May 2011.
According to Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele, “This year, we wished to support the charity through an idea than took shape when I met Giuseppe Zanotti. His talent has inspired a project combining our respective crafts. This pair of shoes represents the expression of two artists at the peak of their profession, and a beautiful means for their future owner to support a noble cause.”
Giuseppe Zanotti, famous for his unique designs and famous jeweled pumps, is extremely enthusiast of this project, “I have been supporting AmFAR’s activities for several years. This project also sparked new creative inspiration and gave me the means of fulfilling a dream: that of creating the most precious shoes ever…”
