Footwear fiends of a feather tend to flock together - as shoe-obsessed designers Cherise Angelle and Nicole LaFave discovered amidst illustrations, scrap fabrics and inspiration boards at LA's Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. Based on a shared love of luxurious, imaginative footwear, the duo started Omelle (pronounced ahm-elle) to cater to stylish lovelies who weren't finding the kind of unique, fabulous footwear a 24/7 stylish life requires. "We want everyone to experience what we do in our shoes," explains LaFave. "You feel confidence, sexy and amazing in them. I love to wear them out to dinner or a gallery opening to see who spies on my shoes. It's so heart warming and rewarding."
While shooting episodes of the new season of Gossip Girl, Blake Lively was spotted in Omelle's Cecilia bootie.
