Designer

Giuseppe Zanotti was born in 1957 in San Mauro Pascoli, a village near Rimini, Italy. Rimini has had a long history of shoemaking dating back to the 1930s. After working as a freelance designer for small, artisanal shoe companies in the 1980s he started as a designer for various leading fashion brands including Gianfranco Ferré and Valentino. In 1994, Zanotti took over a small shoe manufacturing company called Vicini and began designing and producing his own line of shoe-wear. Since then he became one of the most praised shoe designers. "Shoes will always come first, since they're not just accessories - they're my universe.", he explains. Zanotti's styles are considered emotional, sexy and feminine and are worn by celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Charlize Theron, Uma Thurman, Eva Herzigova, Rihanna and many more.
