Wednesday night, I had the pleasure of meeting the president of the ALDO group International, Norman Jaskolka, at their Fall/Winter 2013 collection launch. The event was held in a terrace house in Surry Hills, with their statement shoes being displayed on the bottom level, whilst some of Sydney's 'it' crowd sipped on champagne and partied upstairs. The current look book was shot by the amazing and extremely talented Terry Richardson. The collection features everything from contrasting prints inspired by nature, classical lines, bold colours and beautiful craftsmanship. ALDO prides itself on being the go-to brand for fabulous cutting edge footwear at affordable prices. In a brief speech, Norman gave credit to us Australians, saying that we 'know what is going on in the fashion world. We are a step ahead, instead of behind'.
