Sequin Shoes made just for YOU!
Here is a fantastic story of thinking outside the box in these tough economic times. This is Princess Pumps, a company that specializes in hand made custom sequin shoes!
Founded in early 2009, at the height of the US economic collapse, Princess Pumps saw positive growth throughout the recession. It was founded by Jason Ponic, a film student at the University of New Mexico. Using his training in filmmaking, he created a pair of red sequin shoes for a lady in Kansas as a birthday gift for $50. The rest is history as more and more requests and orders poured in throughout the coming years.
Clients have included Wicked: London, dozens of film and theater productions and countless brides-to-be, eager to see their childhood dreams fulfilled.
