“sneaker suites”

This spring was jam-packed with AWESOME and in the midst of lots of wedding planning and design, we created the centerpieces for the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts Gala at The Kimmel Center! One of our favorite pieces featured a pair of customized Converse sneakers created by local artist Lori Felt.

Each of the Gala centerpieces that we created served as a nod to some of the festival’s biggest installations and performances. We commissioned Felt to customize a pair of sneakers for each of the “Sneaker Suite” centerpieces. For those of you who didn’t get a chance to attend, Sneaker Suite was a multi-layered performance featuring Los Angeles based hip-hop dance troupe Antics and it included dance, poetry, voiceover and theater. The performance focused on the importance of sneakers in hip-hop culture, hence, our sneaker collaboration with Lori Felt!

We first discovered Felt when she introduced Philadelphia to her line of bridal sneakers (so cool) and we were big fans from the beginning. How could you not love her use of vibrant colors and vivid imagery? On top of being incredibly talented, Felt uses her art to create awareness around awesome organizations like Breast Cancer Research and Autism Awareness. We’re looking forward to our next chance to work together! Check out more from Lori here.
