Aquazzura is the brainchild of Edgardo Osorio, one of the most acclaimed shoe designers on the fashion scene.
Born in Venezuela, Osorio has lived and studied between Miami and London before moving to Florence in Italy. After completing his studies at the London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins, he has worked for the most respected shoe designers such as Salvatore Ferragamo, Sigerson Morrison, René Caovilla and Roberto Cavalli. And in 2011 he settled in Florence to start his own brand Aquazzura. The new brand has instantly caught attention on the market making Edgardo Osorio one of the most interesting high end shoe designers.
By now everyone knows his most iconic designs, the “Sexy Thing”, a pair of suede booties that has become a best seller and a loved design by many international fashion editors and celebrities around the globe. His sexy and incredibly comfortable footwear design has brought many awards to Edgardo Osorio.
Why would you want to buy a new pair of shoes at Aquazzura? Because of the innovative and elegant design and because of the inner high quality of the product itself. Aquazzura shoes are made in Florence by expert craftsmen and artisans, and are designed by Osorio in every detail to be at the same time contemporary chic and comfortable to wear.
As Edgardo Osorio explained in the many interviews, his objective is to “create luxurious footwear for modern cosmopolitan women who lead active lives and love to travel”. And with this goal in mind, comfort is key for the young designer in order to allow women to wear his beautifully designed shoes all day long.
Thank to his long experience within the Italian market, Osorio sources the leather for his shoes from the best tanneries in Italy, most of which are based in Tuscany very close to Aquazzura headquarter.
