A little background on Leigh Lezark - she's a model (has graced the pages of Vogue, V and Nylon) and DJ (one-third of the New York CIty based DJ trio the Misshapes). Now she can add designer to her resumé now that she is collaborating on a small footwear collection with French label Surface to Air.
"One knew Leigh Lezark as leader of the New York group The Misshapes and likes to appear impossible to circumvent of the first ranks of the processions Chanel or Louis Vuitton, the socialite adds today a cord with its arc by creating a pair of shoes of exclusiveness for Surface To Air. Diaphanous dye, black hair and green glance, Leigh Lezark affectionate particularly small black dresses with the cuts looked after, ideal to pass from a procession to a set in a New York nightclub. Faithful to its tastes and its style, she thus imagined two models of shoes at platform, a black and a dark gray, at the same time basic and elegant conceived to accompany it throughout her days. Key detail of the shoe: its graphic heel of 13 cm which represents a reversed pyramid. Leigh also affixed its signature under the sole of the shoe, for the key collector. This model will be available at the same time in shop as the collection autumn-winter 2011-2012 of Surface To Air." (Translated from vogue.fr)
