Salvatore Ferragamo taps Paul Andrew as design director of women's footwear
Paul Andrew is somewhat of an industry secret. While his name fails to strike a chord with the everyman, the English designer has worked for a laundry list of greats, amongst them Alexander McQueen and Calvin Klein — two of the most eminent designers on both sides of the pond. His eponymous three-year young label then rose to prominence on the red carpet, counting actresses Emmy Rossum and Emma Watson as part of his clientele.
Now, it's Andrews time to truly shine — taking on the role of women's footwear design director at the Italian accessories whizz, Salvatore Ferragamo. "It is a great honour to be invited to lead the creative vision for the future of its women's shoe division, where the legend began. I look forward to bringing a new perspective to the company in line with the demands of today's marketplace, marrying the power of its heritage and industrial force with high design and the latest innovations in material and make," Andrew affirmed. Let the magic begin.
Paul Andrew will debut his first footwear collection for Salvatore Ferragamo in pre-fall 2017.
