Leslie L. Nottingham (now a Client Service representative at Christie's) is the author of "Well Heeled Lifestyles: The Shoes Of David Evins And The Women Who Wore Them, 1947-1991". We will use her thorough research (done with the help of the Evins family) to highlight Evins' work and to correct along the way mistakes and half-truths about him spread all over dozen of books.
