Paris Hilton To Launch Footwear Line

Paris Hilton's business mind knows no boundary. Just like her great grandfather Nicky and his grandfather Conrad, she definitely inherit the family's business mindset.

First she launched her first fragrance which helped chalking up fragrance firm Parlux's profit to forty percent higher. Next came her debut record, aptly called Paris (the former working title for the album was Paris is Burning) and managed to sell nearly 600,000 copies around the world.

Come this month is the launch of her eponymous fashion label, also called Paris with her ink wash gold-studded skinny jeans being on the top of most Tinseltown fashionistas' list.

Now, the Hilton heiress is putting another venture into her licensing portfolio and that's a footwear line. Yup, ladies and gentlemen, she is following the footsteps of fellow celebrities former Mrs. Nick Lachey Jessica Simpson and guitarist Santana.

To realize the foray, Paris signed a deal with a New York-based footwear manufacturer Antebi Group for a line of high-end footwear line that (maybe) could put Manolo Blahnik, Jimmy Choo or Steve Madden a run on their dollars.

"My goal is to create a stylish and fun fashion line from head to toe," Hilton said in press statement released by the company. "Antebi Group really understand my vision for this line as well as the needs for the fashion-forward young woman."

The high-end shoes collection will comprise of platforms, stilletos, wedges, all bearing Paris's signature styles is due to hit stores next year. Also included in the line is the sports line as well.

While the news got the fashion world buzzing, word has it that her prison sentence and the suspension of driving license angered her grandfather Conrad and cuts her name out of the will. In other words, the heiress will no longer be the heiress. Whatever it is who need those old millions anyway when you are capable to make more than you expected to get?
