No ... I don't actually think so. A box pleat is a square type pleat, as apposed to an accordian pleat, which is more common. Box pleats are often sewn down to about the hips, but also can be loose from the waistband.

Box pleats:

It might be Inverted Box Pleats:

Looking at this closely, it looks more like a gore (or a godet) ... which is a separate piece of V shaped fabric sewn in to a seam that has been cut open, to make the skirt flare.

^ Yes, I meant the inverted one. Looks like it's cut on the bias (hard to tell exactly what's going on without more shots of different angles) with 2 inverted box pleats in front ...

There's a need for more individuality today, and my job is to cater to women, not dictate to them.

Is there a name for this kind of shoe with a block heel and single strap by the toe?

How about the way the sort-of-ankle-strap is, starting at mid-side there? Is there a name for that?

(This one is from Zara, did not fit me at all but would love to find similar.)

Thank you!
