Next year marks the 70th anniversary of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and to celebrate the adventures of the little lost girl from Kansas, Hong Kong shoe boutique On Pedder has partnered with Warner Bros to commission the world's leading fashion designers to create a pair of ruby slippers of their own.

The project follows the exhibition at New York’s Bryant Park during this year’s Fashion Week where designers including Roger Vivier, Christian Louboutin, Oscar de la Renta and Manolo Blahnik all stepped out with their interpretation of the famous red shoes for a modern Dorothy.

For Hong Kong, it’s the turn of a new batch of coutouriers including Azzedine Alaia, Bruno Frisoni, Alexander McQueen, Erickson Beamon, Giuseppe Zanotti and Pierre Hardy. And what fun the designers must have had with this project. Whether it’s Marni's hi-tech heels, Stella McCartney's sophisticated strappy sandals or Azzedine Alaia's sparkly ballet pumps, the creations are a true homage to the legendary film.

The shoes will be unveiled in the On Pedder flagship store in Central on 21 November. At the end of the exhibition, the shoes – including a replica of the original pair worn by Judy Garland in the film – will be sold off in a silent auction and the proceeds donated to charity.
