Art and fashion are two things that are differently done but being accomplished with same goal and passion. When these two are combined, one great masterpiece can be shaped that definitely creates a package of style and identity. Together with one’s eye for art and taste for fashion, a unique blend of outcome can be produced and something personal can be also created out of it –and this is what Bensimon succeeded during Bensimon D.I.Y. event last August 6, 2014.

Bensimon gave opportunity to its fans to turn their favorite pairs into their own masterpieces. Through stamps, bleach, textile paints, brushes, colored pens, beads, needles and threads, Bensimon challenged us to create a pair that will make us proud wearing and will express our personal style and of course, our own personality as well.

So before we start, the staff asked for our shoe size then handed us a pair. The color was randomly picked and it was depend on the availability of the size –lucky me, I got color white!

The beginning was the difficult part of the D.I.Y. since I was not able to decide immediately on what design I am going to draw, but after few minutes of thinking and looking for some inspiration, I finally started sketching!

What he did was a minimal style with a combination of neutral colors, which was also similar with his personal style.
