DUBAI: Reality star and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian West took to Instagram to celebrate hitting 190 million followers over the weekend — and she did it in style thanks to Jordanian-Romanian footwear designer Amina Muaddi.
Kardashian posted a series of snaps in which she’s wearing a tan outfit — complete with glistening leather trousers and a fitted top — which she accessorized with a pair of Muaddi’s in-demand heels.
“190 million, seriously I love u guys so much!!! I appreciate you all more than you know. Please VOTE! You have the power to change your future!” Kardashian captioned the post, referencing the Nov. 3 presidential election in the US.
The heels she picked out were Muaddi’s Holli slingbacks in the shade Sand Watersnake, featuring a lizard embossed leather upper with a leather sole and a modest 3.5 inch heel.
Kardashian championed the Paris-designed, Italy-made brand a few weeks after Muaddi took to social media with the announcement that she was expanding her business with a new handbag collection.
The designer told her 573,000 Instagram followers that her new line will be called Aminis.
She shared a series of images of the new bags being manufactured. According to her shots, her rectangular purses will be available in a range of different colors — including purple, black and silver – and sizes. The handles are adorned will be adorned with crystals, some plain, others with a variety of colors.
Muaddi’s cult brand — famous for its signature flared heels —has garnered a loyal following of famous fans, including Dua Lipa, Gigi Hadid, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin Bieber.
Her most famous collaboration to date is the limited-edition footwear capsule collection with multi-hyphenate superstar Rihanna’s Fenty, which dropped in July.
Rihanna tapped Muaddi to design a collection of shoes for her luxury maison back in December. The news wasn’t all that surprising, considering that the singer-turned-designer has been a longtime fan of Muaddi.
The designer’s eye-catching shoes also previously featured in Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show at New York Fashion Week.
Muaddi launched her footwear line in August 2018, approximately one year after departing from her role as co-founder and creative director of luxury footwear label Oscar Tiye.
