A last-minute request from a soon-to-be first daughter set off an international mission just before the presidential inauguration on Friday.

When word came on Thursday that Tiffany Trump needed footwear for her father’s swearing-in ceremony, British designer Aruna Seth dispatched her head of marketing to hop on a flight from London to Washington to hand-deliver the goods: an $800 pair of forest-green suede boots.

“Tiffany has always been a fan of the brand since it became familiar to her,” Ella Weinberg, who acted as courier, said in an email. The 23-year-old “had specific requirements from us for the Inauguration considering the weather.”

In addition to the high-heeled boots, Tiffany Trump also wore a pair of Seth’s nude pumps to the prayer service Saturday at Washington National Cathedral. Weinberg did not answer our repeated questions about whether the younger Trump daughter paid for the shoes or for the expense of delivering them (though Weinberg did note that she flew commercial).

Asked directly who paid, Weinburg said this: “For us the most important factor was just the fact that we had been considered amongst many other brands for the momentous occasion.”

But the publicity has already been good for Seth. Weinberg said the company has seen an uptick in sales (particularly from the United States) of the boots Tiffany Trump wore, which feature a leather lace-up detail in the back and a crystal butterfly embellishment.
