Exciting News at Aruna Seth!

Aruna Seth launches NEW Fashion Website…

The new Aruna Seth website looks slick, sassy and has been designed to help brides shoe shop! A new photo-shoot has been done to correspond with the website too. The new website has more functionality, you can look for shoes in specific colours, specific heel heights and you can click if you’re looking for specific styles such as platforms, heels and ballerina’s.

New look – new photo-shoot…

The amazing new photo-shoot took place at Home House in London. A lovely old Georgian building that's now a private members club with plenty of spectacular rooms to create the perfect backdrop for the glamorous Aruna Seth shoot. With the grand marble staircase and the Home House ballroom designated as prime locations for the shoot (amazingly Annie Lennox had been married in the ballroom the day before, and the beautiful flowers from her wedding provided the decoration for the bridal shots!).

New sparkly shoes…

Fabulous all over Swarovski heels in a whopping 140mm heel height. The peep-toe heel is covered in crystals delicately attached to the shoe individually. The perfect Princess shoes for Brides who love to sparkle!
