Some of you may have seen Gauguin's or Warhol's images on a chic and artsy woman's shoes and wondered about them. I know I did, until I had the opportunity to meet the owners and directors of the company, Icon. The shoes, handbags and small leather accessories are crafted in soft, supple leather. The shoes are not only fun to wear but a dream to walk in. Whoever imagined Andy Warhol's soup can or Degas' ballerinas on a pair of shoes? This American company, founded in 1999 by who else---a Hollywood filmmaker and art collector committed to the idea that "comfortable shoes don't have to be boring"---soon found its goods in the best stores including Neiman Marcus and Arthur Beren of San Francisco. The Burbank, California company holds worldwide distribution rights to all of the imagery it uses.

Best news of all is that top Hollywood shoe designer George Mang is the newly appointed designer for Icon. With Icon's revolutionary concepts of comfort and art, and Mang's personal style and vision, this company will reach new heights in the fashion industry. And we don't just mean by George Mang's famously "killer high heels"! We will keep our readers updated on this progressive and chic brand.
