Fairytale Fashions company, and now the Rodarte Fall/Winter 2010 Shoe Collection, it would appear that perhaps the fusing of science and fashion has come full circle, from concept to couture. World-renowned shoe designer Nicholas Kirkwood (based in London) is behind the show-stoppin' stilettos, no doubt catalyzing a soon-to-be revolution for the fashion industry. However, the idea to light up the night with blinking kicks isn't exactly new. One may notice that the glowing heels are somewhat reminiscent of the blinking sneaker grade-school days, but I must say it appears the look of the 'lighted shoe' has come a long way (in terms of style) since then. The dripping wax-like structure of the heel creates the perfect cage to trap the light in, totally playing on the gothic-revival style of Rodarte.
