Local Footwear Designer Mira Hightower Poised to Take on Fashion World
Entrepreneur stepping up to success with sexy, fashionable footwear line unveiling on March 1st at SMOTA and March 19 at AmericasMart
Miramar, Fla. (January 30, 2015) Many little girls have fun playing dress up, but local designer Mira Hightower never lost her passion for picking the perfect shoe and accessory for every outfit. This passion led to the creation of HeatherHightower, a footwear label focused on looks which empower women and embrace their femininity. Her latest line, My Shoes My Attitude, is set to take the fashion world by storm when it premieres at the Miami Shoe Show – SMOTA on March 1-3 at the Miami Airport Convention Center (MACC) and The DoubleTree Miami Mart Airport Hotel and on AmericasMart in Atlanta, Georgia on March 19-23, 2015.
Featuring luxurious leathers and eye-catching designs, the runway-worthy shoes are the product of a five-year dream and a gifted eye for detail. Hightower began her life in fashion working with world-renowned fashion brands before using her Institute of Design degree to open her own boutique. The success of the store allowed Hightower to focus on her first love – shoes.
“The line is created by a woman, for women,” says the South Florida resident, Hightower. “Every woman, regardless of where she is in life, has an inner sexiness. The Heather Hightower line brings it out and allows women to take pride in their own femininity.”
“Whether she is heading off to work, out on the town or even shopping for groceries, the shoes will make a women feel beautiful – from bottom to top,” continues Hightower.
The name Heather Hightower came from an inspiring and strong woman itself. Shortly after Mira Hightower was born, her mother fell into a coma. Hightower’s father gave a baby book to her brother suggesting the young boy choose his sister’s name. Seven months later, when Mira’s mother awoke, she informed the family that the baby’s name was supposed to be “Heather.” “The name of the line, Heather Hightower, is an acknowledgment of the love of those people who have supported me every step of this journey,” says Hightower.
