Well-heeled

DINE and Destinations - - TASTING NOTES -

They laughed at Tanya Heath as she changed from flats to heels when she got to her of­fice in Paris. “So I al­ways wore high heels,” she said, “un­til a small ac­ci­dent in­spired me to cre­ate a multi-height shoe.” Two cir­cum­stances contributed to her suc­cess: “The fact that I was teach­ing at a top en­gi­neer­ing school, and that two of the real strug­gles in France are en­gi­neer­ing and fash­ion.” The first five years, Tanya was ridiculed and in­sulted and peo­ple called her a liar to her face. To­day, in her shops in Paris, Los An­ge­les, At­lanta, and Yorkville and York­dale in Toronto, with more to come, her chic Parisian style shoes are on dis­play—along with heels of ev­ery height and colour that are sim­ply clicked in and out. If the colour is not on her Wall of Heels, it doesn't ex­ist. Go from a break­fast meet­ing, or fam­ily din­ner to a night­club in one pair of shoes that change their look from se­ri­ous to sexy with dif­fer­ent heels. Savvy trav­ellers don't pack more shoes, they pack more heels. www.tanya­heath.com/en
