Next up in shoe collaboration-land? Mark Fast will work with Aldo. He tells Catwalk Queen: "This collaboration has given me the opportunity to work with new shoe technology and resources. We are having a great time working together and the Aldo team have been quite inspiring in their innovations. We have a great deal of creative synergy. It's nice to be tied to my roots again with a Canadian enterprise! The collection is about sexy, strong, fierce African fabulousness!" [CQ]
