Shoes designer Nina steps out to her show

SHE’S fast becoming Ireland’s answer to Jimmy Choo after launching her own shoe line, but tonight will see Nina Divito return to her roots when she officially opens her new art exhibition.

The talented designer will be joined by boyfriend and co-manager of Krystle nightclub Brian O'Malley when she turns on the style to debut her latest paintings, named simply, The Autumn Winter Collection, at the Marble Bar of the Westbury Hotel.

Nina (28) is famed for her portrayals of exquisite shoes and lists superstar diva Beyonce Knowles among those who are fans of her work. Among the big names expected to attend tonight's invite only event is Brian's Krystle co-manager Conor Buckley, co-owners of the VIP hotspot Rangan Arulchelvan and Eileen Wright, stylist Lisa Fitzpatrick, socialite Virginia Macari, model boss Andrea Roche and many more.

Nina herself won't be partying too late, however, given that tomorrow morning will see her cut the red ribbon on her new shoe store, Nina Divito -- also in the Westbury Mall.

She also recently designed a range of covers for the iPhone 4.
