A Trendhunter favourite, ultra-modern architect Zaha Hadid, will soon be offering her design skills to the footwear fashion world. According to, Hadid is set to be the next designer to collaborate with Brazilian footwear company Melissa. “Each season, the Brazilian shoe company Melissa matches up with a maverick designer, who then creates a pair of limited-edition shoes using the company's trademark injection molding technique,” says Style file. Vivienne Westwood was the most recent designer to work with Melissa creating a plastic shoe design.

The fluid form of the shoes Hadid has designed reflects her architectural style flawlessly.
