The fashion designer who worked for two decades to create the shoes worn by stars from the 1920s to the ’30s has earned $6.2 million after a company in Florida paid for them.
Tina Sohar was the fashion director for fashion company Avantgarde for more than a decade.
Her clients included the likes of Adrien Brody, Kim Kardashian and Angelina Jolie.
In July, Avant Garde said it would pay Sohara $6 million to retire after nearly 25 years of service.
She was the first woman to lead the company and it is the second largest shoe manufacturer in the world.
The shoes have been worn by celebrities including Kim Kardashian West, Madonna, Kylie Jenner and Jennifer Lopez.
She also worked on the designer collections of the designer-owned luxury brand Dolce & Gabbana.
She said she was stunned to receive the money.
“I was shocked because I had never heard of it,” Sohars said.
“It was so unexpected.
It’s very difficult to explain how you were so shocked, especially as a fashion designer, to hear it from a company that I have been working for for a long time.”
Sohar said she has not received any offers to renew her contract.
Avant Gardes is the only shoe company in the country to pay the money, and its employees are now all in place.
“We are proud to announce that we are now a proud member of Avant-Garde’s family,” Sohnar said in a statement.
“I look forward to the future of Aanthegard, which is a leading designer and manufacturer of footwear.”
