Darcey Bussell Signed Shoes
The beautiful and poised Darcey Bussell, widely classed as one of Britain’s best ballerinas, performed with the Royal Ballet throughout her career until her retirement from ballet in 2007. A testament to her talent and influence, her final performance received a standing ovation lasting over 8 minutes! Since then, Darcey has remained a hugely significant figure in dance, brightening up our screens on the panel of Strictly Come Dancing!
Darcey has been a supporter of Small Steps Project since 2012.
This year Darcey has donated a pair of brown, python leather, pointed-toe kitten heels by Gucci in a size EUR 38.5. Darcey wore these shoes to the Veuve Clicquot Millennium Party on 9/9/1999 in the Orangery at Versailles.
“I wore the shoes with an Armani sparkly jacket. It was an evening I will never forget!”

Small Steps Project is a UK charity that wants to inspire everyone to take a small step, because together it is possible to make a difference.
From people volunteering their skills and attending their events, to companies donating their products and services, Small Steps raises funds that go to those who need it most. First, they provide emergency aid, shoes and food to children and communities living on municipal rubbish dumps around the world. Then they provide support for children to take steps into education, and adults into employment.
They deliver their projects in two phases. In the first phase they deliver emergency aid distribution projects, providing items that will protect people from the immediate dangers on rubbish dumps—from shoes, gloves and clothing to mosquito nets, food and water. This enables them to establish the demographics of the dump and devise and implement the second phase of sustainable projects that aims to reduce the time children spend on dumps and support them in taking small steps into education.
Small Steps Project makes documentary films and organises campaigns, such as Celebrity Shoe Auctions, to boost awareness and raise funds for this huge, but often overlooked, global situation.
