Anahí Debuts Her Shoe Designs in the United States

She’s known for her killer style… And now Anahí is helping women like her put their best (fashion) foot forward…

The 29-year-old Mexican singer/actress is making her stateside debut as a fashion designer with her own line of shoes for style-savvy Latinas.


“I’m super happy to launch in the U.S. the sale of shoes by catalog where Latino women can select from among a great variety and according to their tastes,” says Anahí , who is reportedly recording a duet with Flo Rida.

The publicity campaign to promote Los Zapatos Fabulosos de Anahí  in the United States began this week, with the former member of RBD offering her footwear designs online via Aviesta.com.

“I make suggestions with drawings of the shoes’ designs so that Latino women see them as pretty, like the ones the celebrities use on the red carpet, but at prices accessible to everybody,” said Anahí, who serves as Aviesta.com’s fashion director.

“Four years ago we began to offer my shoe designs in Mexico, but via the Facebook page and other social networks, the girls in the U.S. have been asking me when I was going to expand the service … here,” added the singer.

It looks like the time is now… And after taking a Style Quiz on the website, you’ll have a monthly showroom of Anahí-approved zapatos to choose from.
