EM &Co presents KM2Shoes

If you happen to be in the Mid-Wilshire area you need to stop by EM & Co. Heck, if you live in Los Angeles then you need to take a trip to this store. The cutting edge boutique features an impressive collection of clothing, shoes, and jewelry – many of which you won’t find anywhere else. It’s hard not to fall in love with the place and even harder not to walk out with bags full of interesting goodies. They even have an on-site tailor in case that Vivian Westwood dress you happen to fall in love with needs a bit of tweaking here and there.

Another great thing about EM & Co (besides the friendly staff) is that the store is an active supporter of local talent. All the artwork on the walls are by local artist and Em & Co frequently host monthly art exhibits and other events that feature the local artists and designers whose merchandise they carry. Luckily for us we were fortunate enough to catch a fashion show featuring KM2Shoes. Let me tell you these shoes are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

Founded by sisters Megan, Katelyn, and Mattison Gelber KM2’s shoes are by far the most stunning, drop dead gorgeous heels around. Not only are these girls extremely talented, but there are also very nice and savvy when it comes to business. Their shoes are a piece of art. Each one is crafted by hand and is adorned with items ranging from feathers, to bows, to chains, to vintage jewelry. The night of the show Katelyn happen to be wearing a pair of metallic silver heels that her sister Megan designed for her. And, even though all the shoes in a particular style may look alike the ornaments may vary, so it’s like the sister’s created a special shoe just for you. (They also take custom orders.) The prices are really reasonable for the amount of work and detail that goes into them ($195 - $295) and aside from being diva worthy they are very comfortable too (hence KM2’s motto “shoes to live in”). Seriously, Alexander McQueen needs to hire these girls. I can see their creations on his cat walk.

Another reason to love KM2 is that 10% of all profits go to stop Human Trafficking. The sisters even created a Mary Jo cuff that you can purchase and wear to show your support for the cause. A number of girls at the fashion show were wearing the cuff, which are made of ribbons and adorned with Swarovski crystals and are quite beautiful. You can purchase the shoes and cuff at or you can head over to Em & Co which is located at 7940 W 3rd St. Los Angeles. For those of you that don’t live in the Los Angeles area Em & Co will be launching its on-line store on October 14.  -Nikki Neil
