My beautiful girls I am starting today a new section about Things you did not know about Shoe Designers.

I will write it in english otherwise it would be too long to translate it in both languages but I am up to any request...!!!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it!

Salvatore Ferragamo was born in 1898, Italy.
He had 13 brothers and sisters!

Salvatore Ferragamo was 9 years old when he decided to make shoes for his sisters to wear to their Confirmation. He understood that his parents couldn't afford the traditional white shoes so he made them himself.

After making his sister shoes, he went to Naples to study shoemaking.
He was only 13 when he returned home and oppened in his family house
his first business.
Sixteen year old Salvatore traveled to the United States, where e started working in a cowboy boot factory in Boston.
He learned some mother techniques but he wasn't satisfied with the quality of the shoes.

He moved to California were he began making shoes for the film industry.
Some of the famous movie stars that loved his shoes were
 Greta Garbo, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe! 

As Hollywood's most famous shoe designer, Salvatore Ferragamo created some of the most legendary shoes ever featured in film, for example Dorothy's ruby slippers in The Wizard of Oz and Marilyn Monroe's sexy red stilettos.

Salvatore Ferragano invented the Stiletto Shoes!

Ferragano was convinced that fashion didn't have to be painful. 
He decided to learn anatomy and enrolled in a course in university to learn everything about the human foot.

In 1927 he moved to Florence, Italy, 

He reinvented the old saying that “necessity is the mother of invention”.When supplies of leather and other shoemaking materials became tight in the 1930s, Ferragamo started using non conventional materials.

He created the cork sole wedge shoe, which was an imeditate hit!
The first ones were made using cork from wine bottles!

Some of other materials used by Ferragamo included wood, metal wire, felt, raffia and even gold! 

He held over 300 patents at the time of his death in 1960.

The label expanded and now, also sell eyewear, perfume,scarves, belts, handbags, watches and clothing.

One of the most classic Ferragamo shoe styles is the Vara ballet pump.
It was designed by his daugher in 1978
Today, Ferragamo still remains as one of the world's most luxury brands.
