Most Americans are already familiar with Salvatore Ferragamo. If not by name, by work: Mr. Ferragamo was the man responsible for Dorothy’s amazing red heels in “The Wizard of Oz”. Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren are other legendary stars who proudly wore the designer. Salvatore was a true visionary when it came to women’s shoes – he approached each design with a meticulous and analytical mind. When paired with his seemingly effortless creativity, the result was amazing shoe innovations such as the wedge heel and cage heel.
Over time, Ferragamo has expanded into men’s and women’s wear collections, eyewear, perfume and silk accessories. Today’s clients include Angelina Jolie, Hugh Jackman, George Clooney and Nicole Kidman. Quality, innovation and elegance are still a major part of what makes the label as successful today as it was in Julie Garland’s day.
The brand has remained family operated and prides itself in its over 500 stores worldwide. The styles can also be found at Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman’s.
