In thinking about the words “empowerment, transformation and invincible” Alfonsina Romero was inspired by couture high heels. She designed a custom wood carved holiday ornament for the Invincible Me charity auction, featured at the BDNY 2015. Invincible Me raises funds to help empower battered women in shelters through education.
The ornament is functional, it is a carved wood stocking that represents the spirit of an independent provider during the holidays, which morphs into a stiletto heel to symbolize empowerment. With the sexy red ribbon and white lacquered sole, the sculptural piece was displayed with a raw cotton stem inside the vase. This ornament is inspired by transformation and confidence.
